The Uneasiness of the Time

"I am verily persuaded, God will bring some heavy affliction upon this land, and that speedily; but be of good comfort... If the Lord seeth it will be good for us, He will provide a shelter and a hiding place for us and others..."

--John Winthrop, governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, writing of England in 1630

(The quote and the title of the post is taken from Churchill's _The New World_, Chapter 12)
