This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...to assume no further to my selfe, then what may stand is with the glory of God, and the generall good of my endeared Countrey.
