About this Item

2 page hand written letter, 4 1/2 x 7 1/2", signed "Niantic", written in brown ink on edge worn paper, old creases. Humorous will drawn up after considering the "uncertainty of life, having groaned these 40 years in Great Distress in my Body politic with Various theological distempers. I bequeath to my darling Daughter Chesterfield all my Ignorance with 1/4 of my folly." Also leaves knavery, religion, inhumanity, bigotry, superstitution, fanaticism, ministerial quarrel, "feminine preachings & indecent noise in Religious Assemblies", etc. An interesting look at early Connecticut humor.
