A narrative of the planting of the Massachusetts Colony anno 1628 with the Lords signal presence the first thirty years : also a caution from New-Englands apostle, the great Cotton, how to escape the calamity which might befall them or their posterity, and confirmed by the evangelist Norton, with prognosticks from the famous Dr. Owen concerning the fate of these churches, and animadversions upon the anger of God in sending of evil angels among us by Joshua Scottow ( )

"This edition of A Narrative of the Planting of the Massachusetts Colony Anno 1628 is based on the first edition published in Boston in 1694. The spelling, orthography, punctuation, and capitalization of the original have been retained; only obvious typographical errors have been corrected. Scottow's Narrative is the sequel to Old Mens Tears for their Own Declensions, published three years earlier. It is an expansion of the argument that God and history are being unkind to New England because its churches have strayed from the strict practice of the unanimously-minded early founders of the Congregational Way. Scottow treats of the miraculous events and deliverances that characterized the first generations, and contrasts these with the reverses and humiliations suffered by the later generation, including bad neighbors (the French and the Dutch), natural disasters, Indian wars, witchcraft, the loss of the colony's charter, the imposition of imperial rule, the non-support of ministers, and the abandonment of the office of the Ruling Elders in the churches. Perhaps the most famous quote (found in both works) is 'That NEW-ENGLAND is not to be found in NEW-ENGLAND, nor BOSTON in BOSTON'"--Abstract at
