Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Colonization of Connecticut." ". . . the repeated injuries inflicted by the Pequods, and the actual murder of about thirty of the settlers, determined the general court of Connecticut to proceed to active hostilities; and on the 1st of May, 1637, they resolved to raise ninety men, who were placed under the command of Captain Mason. This force, accompanied by sixty friendly Indians, under Uncas, a Mohegan sachem, sailed on the 19th for Narragansett Bay . . . The Pequods, believing the English were afraid to attack them, were passing the night in rejoicing, till weary with singing and dancing, they sought repose. The English surprised the fort just before the break of day . . ."
