He had no equal in any of the colonies, for conducting a war against the Indians, excepting, perhaps, Captain John Mason."

We did so greatly humble them both yet though George (being a membr) was excomvnicated, yet in a short time was taken in againe. And Edward humbling himselfe so effectually yet he was also speedyly received in to the Church, this is the tryvmph of grace, to magnify grace by sinne.
