In Old Hadley free pdf Excerpt from In Old Hadley Lieut. Smith - "I doubt not, Mr. Russell, but what thou didst do as seemeth right to thee. Far be it from me to dispute thy reason for offering these unfortunate men an asylum in Hadley. I be but thinking of the calamity that will surely come to us, if it reach the ear of King Charles the Second, that we have befriended two of the Judges who condemned his father, Charles the First, to the scaffold. What dost thou think, Captain Cook?" Capt. Aaron Cook - "Of the danger that overshadows us, if we do receive them here, thou hast spoken truly, Lieutenant Smith. We have heard of the punishment meted out to the Judges whom Charles the Second hath captured in England, also what happened to those who did befriend them. It is true, as thou hast said, that if we do succor them in Hadley, and it comes to the ear of Charles, it speaketh of grave danger to all who befriend these hunted men, knowing, as we do, that the King's soldiers are seeking them among the colonies, yet, I do but agree with Mr. Russell, that it be our duty to succor them." Peter Tilton - "Such be my opinion, also, Captain Cook. Thee speaketh of the danger to ourselves, Lieutenant Smith, have we not often faced danger? Are we not always facing it in Hadley at this time? These dangers we have faced, and must continue to face for many future days. Thee would not have us run from them, wouldst thou, Lieutenant Smith?" Lieut. Smith - "Of a surety not. These dangers we are prepared to meet, if needs be." Mr. Russell - "Must we not meet, and overcome the dangers that may come upon if we receive these unhappy men? Their danger be greater than ours. If these unhappy men are taken by Charles the Second, inhuman torture will be meted out to them. If we be seized by the minions of the King, imprisonment, or fine, is doubtless what our lot would be, but these unhappy men must surely meet torture, if they be taken." Lieut. Smith - "Captain Cook and Mr. Tilton are agreed with thee. What doth thy brother say? (turns to Phillip Russell) What be thy opinion, Phillip?" Phillip Russell - "I agree with Captain Cook and Mr. Tilton, and of a surety, with my brother." Lieut. Smith - "But why is not John Marsh here? Was he not summoned to this council?" Mr. Russell - "He was- he be waiting for news of his son, Daniel, whom as thou knowest, was sent to escort the Generals to this settlement by the safest and quickest path." Lieut. Smith - "That be another thing that I can but disagree with thee about. Why was Daniel Marsh sent on such a mission? He be but a stripling, and o'er young to be entrusted with such a hazardous undertaking." Mr. Russell - "In years, surely he be young, but hast thou forgotten, Lieutenant Smith, that, though a stripling, Daniel Marsh hath shown wonderful woodcraft?" Lieut. Smith - "Of his woodcraft I have no fears, but to be entrusted with so secret a mission, as this must needs be, it doth seem that it would have been more meet to have sent an older person- one with more discretion than such a stripling as Daniel Marsh can possibly have. He be but a boy." Phillip Russell - "As to that, it was I who suggested him as the one to go. As thou knowest, Lieut. Smith, he and the young Indian, Teto, are inseparable, and, as thou also doth know, Teto is the advance scout, so to speak, of Daniel. Teto be fleet of foot, and tireless on the trail. Daniel would send him ahead to mark out the trail, and would follow that trail. Lieut. Smith - "That young Indian be another full young for such a mission, so it seemeth to me. Belike if Charles's minions should get him, he would betray us to them." Mr. Russell - "Thee art a doubting Thomas, Lieutenant Smith, else thou wouldst know that Teto would lay his life down for Daniel Marsh." Lieut. Smith - "I see that thee art all opposed to my counsel. Thee may be right. Whether thee be or not, far be it f
