CHAPTER XVI RECONSTRUCTION 1664-1666 (GOVERNOR Nicoms) I never said nor thought you had not work enough. The bare hearing of impertinences without the framing of laws, the ordering of the soldiers, the gaining of the Dutch, the governing of the English, the regulating of the trade, and the providing of necessaries . . . must needs be thought by all men work enough for any one man.

Colonel Cartwright to Governor Nicolls. 1665.
