Excerpt from The History of the Insurrections in Massachusetts: In the Year Seventeen Hundred and Eighty Six, and the Rebellion Consequent Thereon

However disagreeable it may be to review the troubles of our country, every patriot will look upon it as his duty, not to let them pass without notice. The period of misfortune is the most fruitful source of instruction. By investigating the causes of national commotions, by tracing their progress, and by carefully marking the means through which they are brought to a conclusion, well established principles may be deduced, for preserving the future tranquillity of the Commonwealth. No person, therefore, will consider it as an unnecessary renewal of painful ideas, or as a wanton publication of transactions, which some may wish, what indeed is impossible, to bury in oblivion, when we candidly and respectfully look into the late insurrections.
