Excerpt from The Border Wars of New England: Commonly Called King William's and Queen Anne's Wars A Monograph on the subject of the Indian wars during the reigns of King William III. and Queen Anne was a favorite project with my father, Samuel G. Drake, for which he gathered a mass of materials in manuscript, but did not live to see realized. With the aid of these, and other contemporary accounts, the present volume has been written. Although told more or less fully in all the general histories, the story is nowhere connectedly told, but is broken off whenever other features of the general subject demand a hearing. This method not only breaks the thread, but also the force of the story, which is much more satisfactorily followed in a compact form.
