Diary of Samuel Sewall, Vol. 2

Excerpt from Diary of Samuel Sewall, Vol. 2: 1674-1729 The Publishing Committee herewith presents to the Society the second volume of the Diary of Samuel Sewall, printed from the Manuscript in its Cabinet. The text of the volume in eludes the period from January 14, 1699 - 1700, to April 14, 1714. Another volume in print will complete the publication of the manuscript Diary. The Judge's letter-book will furnish the materials for a fourth volume. The Committee has continued the same system of annotating the text which was adopted in the first volume. Resisting the prompting or opportunity to explain or illustrate the many in teresting references which the Judge makes to matters of his torical importance, to an extent which would expand the notes beyond the text, the method pursued, as the reader will observe, has been restricted to occasional comments, and to genealogical and local particulars and references, without quoting authorities easily accessible to the students of our history. The connection between Judge Sewall's family and that of Governor Dudley evidently embarrassed the former, alike in his official position as a magistrate, and in making entries in his diary concerning mat ters in which they were occasionally at variance. That Sewall should also have drawn upon himself the hostility of Cotton Mather, who, with his father, the President of the College, was in violent feud with Dudley, may help to show the perplexities of the Judge's position and course even when he seems to have tried to act as a moderator or an umpire. The Committee has therefore thought it advisable to reprint three very rare pam phlets which, as fully presenting matters of bitter strife in rela tion to the parties just named, will make annotation upon it unnecessary. A few fragmentary and miscellaneous papers in Sewall's hand precede these Tracts. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
