Attributed to Increase Mather. Cf. NUC pre-1956.
What is evidently a first draft of the above, containing about one-half of the text, is among the Hutchinson papers in possession of the Massachusetts Historical Society, and was printed in its collections, 3rd ser., v. 1, p. 93-101; the handwriting is not that of Mather.
The "Brief relation" includes in addition the 12th article of the Declaration of the gentlemen, merchants, and inhabitants of Boston, Apr. 18, 1689 (believed to have been written by Mather); Abraham Kick's letter to the Princess of Orange, Feb. 1, 1689 n.s.; and a translation of Mather's "De successu Evangelij apud Indos in Nova-Anglia epistola. Ad ... Johannem Leusaenum." It was reprinted in Force's Tracts, v. 4, no. 11, and Andros tracts, v. 2, p. 147-170, the latter containing a discussion of authorship.
