Captain Nelson : A Romance of Colonial Days (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Captain Nelson: A Romance of Colonial Days But this was not all. The bewil dered inhabitants who possessed their lands by purchase from the original inhabitants of the soil, who had re ceived the solemn pledge of Charles II. That their rights of freehold should not be disturbed or impaired, were now told that their titles were invalid; and that the mark of an Indian sagamore was no more warranty than the scratch of a bear's paw. The work of univer sal spoliation began by the issue of writs of intrusion against wealthy land holders, and by the attempted confis cation of tracts held in common by the freemen of the towns.
