The Standard of the Lord lifted up in New-England; or the Trumpet of the Lord sound∣ing there.
To all you Rulers, and Magistrates, and Priests in New-England, most of all of the Town of Boston in New-England, who have put the servants of the Living God to death: Whereas you say in your Law, there is a cursed Sect of Here∣ticks risen up in the World, which are com∣monly called Quakers, who take upon them to be immediately sent of God, and infal∣libly assisted by the Spirit, to speak and write Blaspemous Opinions, despising Go∣vernment, and the Order of God in Church and Common-wealth, speaking evil of Dig∣nities, reproaching and reviling Magi∣strates and Ministers, seeking to turn the People from the Faith, and Gain Proselites to their pernitious wayes.
