Major John Mason, a principal Actor therein, as then chief Captain and

Introduction and some Explanatory Notes by the Reverend Mr. Thomas
PSAL. XLIV. 1-3.
We have heard with our Ears, O God, our Fathers have told us, what Work Thou
didst in their Days, in the times of old; How Thou didst drive out the Heathen
with thy Hand, and plantedst Them: how Thou did afflict the People and cast them
out. For they got not the Land in Possession by their own Sword, neither did
their own Arm save them: but thy right Hand, and thine Arm, and the Light of thy
Countenance, because Thou hadst a Favour unto them.
PSAL. CII. 18.
This shall be written for the Generation to come: and the People which shall
be Created, shall praise the Lord.
