Excerpt from The Popham Colony: A Discussion of Its Historical Claims, With a Bibliography of the Subject

A passing reader of his famous review would be at a loss to understand why this terrible onset is made on this small pam phlet, nine-tenths of which he says does not refer to the Popham subject at all, as though he expected to conquer them, Chinese like, by only making a great noise. But a friend at my elbow savs that this is a broadside in advance, or, rather, the fire of his skirmish line, and only preparatory to the advance of his big guns, which are to come in the shape of a preface to a reprint, in which he intended to entirely annihilate the. Pophams, the Gorges, all their followers and biographers, great and small, rich and poor, so completely that our histories will have to be re written, and these old names that have been so prominent in our early annals obliterated entirely; and finally to destroy the gran ite walls of Fort Popham, memorial stone and all, and by further displays of his cut-and-thrust logic prove conclusively that it is all a myth, and nothing of the kind ever existed.
