Excerpt from Massachusetts, Its Historians and Its History: An Object Lesson
While occupied last winter on historical work in connection with a forthcoming publication of the prince society on antinomianism IN the colony OF massachusetts bay, 1636 - 1638, I found my self led into an investigation the results of which were, in character, generally radical and somewhat iconoclastic. As I went on I became curious to see how those results would impress a class of students just entering upon history as a study.
You were kind enough to offer me, being an Over seer of the College, one of your classes to experiment on; and, as you remember, in April I occupied your desk for two morning hours. What I wished to say had to be greatly compressed to get it within the allotted time but my audience, I thought, took rather kindly to views, general and particular, which would hardly have been encouraged in the Cambridge of forty years ago.
