Conducted to King Philip
Several singular Incidents occurred at the breaking out of the War. These have never been fully collected. One, concerning Mr. John Tracy1 of Norwich, may be mentioned. Mr. Tracy had married Mary Winslow of Marshfield, some five Years previous. On returning from a Visit to the latter Place, he was surrounded by a Party of armed Indians who conducted him to Philip. He told the Chief that he was only a Traveller, and on no Design affecting the Indians ; whereupon, after a pretty close Scrutiny, he was allowed to return Home. Not many Days later, Mr. Joseph Tory and Mr. Hubbard sent a Boat to Westerly, and brought their Friends to Newport.
