A Narrative of the Captivity and Sufferings of Benjamin Gilbert and His Family
In the Preface to the first edition of this work, the following testimony was inserted, and it is worthy of being remembered, in the perusal of the following Narratives. That their lives were preserved through the many threatening scenes they passed, whilst in the hands of the Indians, is to be ascribed, with gratitude and thankfulness, to the great Ruler of the universe, who can say unto the sea, Thus far shalt thou go, and no farther.' And though Benjamin Gil bert, the elder, was permitted to sink under the weight of his fatigue and afﬂictions, yet he lived to be restored to liberty, and breathed his last in the arms of his affectionate wife.
