History of the City of New York

HISTORY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK land over his rebellious subjects and for the success of the allied Christian armies against the Ottoman Turks. The bloodthirsty way in which the rebellion in England was suppressed, writes Burnet, had given 'a general horror to the body of the nation.' It must have tempered the spirit of thanksgiving in New York. Taken with the news of the arrangements made for New England it must have awakened a reasonable fear that James the king would prove a much less tolerable master than James the duke had been.
