[The listening experience occurs near the conclusion of a period of conduct by New Hampshire settlers judged disloyal by the British government]

 

Account of Lieutenant-Governor Usher's proceedings on receipt of his orders of 3 August and 27 October, 1697, from Whitehall. [...] On the 13th [December] [...] I [...] set forth with all the Councillors except Green to Newcastle [New Hampshire], where Captain Walton, by my order, had drawn up as many of the militia as he could obtain under arms. We then alighted from our horses, and before going into any house I read the aforesaid orders and proclamation, and ordered wine for the soldiers to drink the King's health. […] I then gave my warrant to Captain Fryer to deliver the King's fort and stores to Captain Walton. He ordered the fort to be delivered to him, but Hincks, who had the custody of the stores, declined to deliver them. I issued my warrant therefore for seizure of the stores, which was done. On the 14th December […] Mr. Partridge [...] came with about one hundred well-armed men, drums beating, colours flying, entered the fort and seized the same. […]A warrant was immediately issued for arrest of my sheriff and for two files of musketeers to seize him, when judging myself not safe, since I could not get my Commission, I returned to Boston. Signed, John Usher.
