Very complete, sometimes to the point of tedium, but still enthralling. Everyone should read this book or another like it. A very sad chapter in our nation's history. Läs hela recensionen

How oft do they with golden pinions cleave The flitting skies, like flying pursuivant, Against foul fiends to aid us militant !

Sida 7 - ... scene ! The silver moon, unclouded, holds her way Through skies where I could count each little star. The fanning west wind scarcely stirs the leaves ; The river, rushing o'er its pebbled bed, Imposes silence with a stilly sound.

Sida 134 - ... small army thus played the man, the whole country was filled with distress and fear, and we trembled in this capital, Boston itself; and that to the goodness of God to this army we owe our fathers...
Sida 365 - How oft do they their silver bowers leave, To come to succour us that succour want ! How oft do they with golden pinions cleave The flitting skies, like flying pursuivant, Against foul fiends to aid us militant ! They for us fight : they watch and duly ward, And their bright squadrons round about us plant ; And all for love, and nothing for reward : Oh, why should heavenly God to men have such regard ?
Sida 369 - is shaped us the true idea of a witch ; an old weather-beaten crone, having her chin and her knees meeting for age, walking like a bow, leaning on a staff; hollow-eyed — untoothed, furrowed on her face, having her limbs trembling with the palsy, going mumbling in the streets : one that hath forgotten her Pater-noster, and yet hath a shrewd tongue to call a Drab a Drab.
Sida 410 - God having appointed that secret supernatural sign, for trial of that secret unnatural crime : so that it appears that God hath appointed (for a supernatural sign of the monstrous impiety of witches) that the water shall refuse to receive them in her bosom, that have shaken off them the sacred water of baptism, and wilfully refused the benefit thereof...
Sida 458 - Note, say, Now I am well. She would be faint at first, and say, She felt something to go out of her !
