1903 - TO ALL THE DWELLERS AT BLACK POINT, AND IN PECULIAR, MY HUSBAND. BLACK POINT, In the Province of Maine, The Twentieth day o f August, Anno Domini, 1642. - HER LETTERS - PHILIPPA a After my duty and my Uncles presented to yourself these will inform you of our present health. Hither came I this day sennight, devoid of mishap. When we did twyne down the Massachusetts Bay and cast ing anchor lay before Boston Town, the dear felicity of sighting land did set open the very flood-gates of mine eyes. 18 Mistress Alice Jocelyn sold nor traded for, never. On a hilltop moreover, theres set up a tall gallows whereon a beacons lit for to warn the town of danger. The people, they re a likely sort, pretty steady and satisfied with themselves, and mighty proud of their village also. For the space of four and twenty hours, I tarried under Mr. Edward Tyng, his roof, being full hospitably entreated the while. This is an amiable gentleman of substance which hath influence in them parts. His dwelling S wondrous stout, as forsooth need is, for it sits on the shore hurtled by storms. Here moreover, do stand his brew and warehouses. Theres a fine sun-dial in his garden. His pretty wife, shes a buxom lady and a mer Her Letterr to Philippa 19 ry. Mistress Tyng hath a spinet.
