The Puritan Times embrace the most interesting and instructive period in the annals of English History. Prolific in characters distinguished by great intellectual powers, combined nith apostolic simplicity and piety, though shaded by some deformities, and detailing struggles for civil and religious liberty in opposition to arbitrary power, which rank amongst the most patriotic and heroic ever witnessed, and which have left unmistakeable traces of the Pui-itan type on the English character, and on English institutions; the history of those times must ever engage the attention, and be fraught with the lessons of wisdom. To this inviting field the author has turned his inquiries; and he hopes that the result, in this series of female biographies, embracing the lives of women belonging to or connected with the Puritan party in the seventeenth century, may not be unworthy of the pub Hcapproval. The most of the eminent women commemorated in these volumes may be considered as historical characters. They may not have acted any very conspicuous part in the public transactions of their time, or have given to it its mould and importance; but they stood closely connected by relationship or otherwise with the master spirits and prime actors.
