Synopsis: Tuis volume, while forming a distinct work in itself, is intended as an instalment towards a complete history of the English Colonies in North America during their period of dependence on the mother country. I hope in the next volume to deal with the New England Colonies down to the end of the seventeenth century. I have chosen that epoch as a convenient halting-place both in the case of New England and of the colonies whose history forms the subject of the present volume, because it marks a distinct break in the administrative system adopted towards the colonies and in their relations to the English Government. Moreover, the history of the individual colonies from the beginning of the eighteenth century down to the separation from England, has not the same interest which attached to it at an earher stage, and thus the different settlements may in a great measure be dealt with collectively. A third volume will include the remaining colonies and the history of the whole group from the beginning of the eighteenth century down to the period of separation.
