[our] present health of our present being when other of our friends are by the
barbarous heathen cut off from having a being in this world The Lord [of] late
hath renewed his witnesses against vs, and hath dealt very bitterly with us in
that we are deprived of the societie of our nearest friends by the breaking in of
the adversarie against vs ; On Friday last in the morning your own son with
your two sons in Law Anthony and Thomas Bracket and their whole families
were killed and taken by the Indians, we know not how, tis certainly known by
us that Thomas is slain and his wife and children carried away captiue, and of
Anthony and his family we haue no tidings and therefore think that thay might
be captivated the night before because of the remoteness of their habitation from
neighborhood, Gra Corban and all his family Gm Lewis and his wife, James
Ross and all his family, Gm Durham, John Munjoy, and Daniel Wakcly, Ben-
jamin Hadwell and all his family are lost, all slain by sun an hour high in the
Morning and after, Gm Wallis his dwelling house and none besides his is burnt
there are of men slain 11, of women and children 23 killed and taken, we that
are alive are forced upon Mr. Andrews his Island to secure our own and the
Hues of our families we haue but little provision and are so few in number that
we are not able to bury the dead till more strength come to us, the desire of the
people to your selfe is that you would be pleased to speak to Mr. Munjoy and
Deacon Philips that they would entreat the Governour that forthwith aid
might be sent to vs either to fight the enemie out of our borders that our Eng-
lish Corn may be inned in whereby we may comfortably liue or remoue vs out
of Danger that we may provide for our selues elsewhere having no more at
present but desiring your prayers to God for his preservation of us in these
times of danger, I rest Your dutifull Son

honor of Gen. Jonathan Moulton, of Hampton, who was a principal proprietor."
MS. note of John Farmer in a copy of the 3d Ed. of the BOOK OF THE INDIANS.

P. 313. PROF. UPHAM, of Bowdoin College, is the author of the ballad there
given. Farmer, as above cited.

P. 522. CAPT. WHITEEYES. In the Narrative of Richard Bard's Adven-
tures among the Indians will be found some interesting details for an enlarge-
ment of the life of this chief. See London's Selection of Ind. Nars. ii. 57 71.

P. 531. HALFKING. Besides the different Indian names which we have
given for this chief, another has been published in the " History of Western Penn-
sylvania" He is there called Tanacharison, where it is also stated that he died
at Harris Perry, (Harrisburg,) Oct. 1st, 1754. In another part of the same
work, (p. 71,) it is stated that he died at the house of John Harris, of that place,
and was buried by him.

P. 572. Note J. In the Boston Courier of 31th August, 1843, it is mentioned
that the Capt. Newman, who fell in St. Glairs defeat, was of Boston ; that he
was of the class of 1766, in the Latin school, while of the same class w r ere Isaac
Coffin, since Admiral Sir Isaac, Dr. Jona. Homer, late of Newton, Dr. James
Freeman, &c.

P. 683. In our note stating the age and death of Daniel Boone, we have
made an alteration in conformity to information received from Rev. J. M. PECK.
It now agrees with what he has since published in his excellent life of the old
Pioneer, and corresponds very nearly with the facts in Niles's Register, printed at
the time.



INDEX



NOTE. The names of Indians are printed in CAPITALS ; and all names of tribes and In-
dian names of places are set in Italic type. This method of distinguishing articles the author has
found, by experience, greatly to relieve the eyes.

Not only names of tribes, nations, and countries are italicized, but such English names are
printed in the same letter as have been given to tribes, nations, and places inhabited by Indians.

A few baptismal or Christian names, and some names of places, will be found in brackets.
Those are additions, and are not found in the body of the work.
