Excerpt from A Narrative of the Captivity of Nehemiah How in 1745-1747

On July 5th, 1745, William Phips was hoeing in his cornfield, in the southwest corner of the meadow, when suddenly two Indians surprised him, and led him away captive to the woods - a distance of near half a mile. They halted in order to permit one of them to descend a steep hill, where he had left some thing. Phips, with great strategic ingenuity, seizing the moment when the remaining In dian was off his guard, struck him down with his hoe and chop'd him very much, so that he died soon thereafter. Snatching this In dian's gun, he shot and killed the second Indian as he was returning. Phips then took to his heels, but was almost instantly killed by a shot from one of the guns of three other Indians, who appeared on the spot at this juncture. They scalped him and mangled his body in a most Inhuman manner. The news of this outbreak brought Capt. Ebenezer Alexander with a company of fifty-six men to the region, and they were kept in service scouring the woods and guarding the towns, from July 12th until September 8th.* There was a brief lull in the exhibitions of savagery.
