Sewall notes in his diary, under this same date of Aug. 15, "Cary arrives who had been pillaged by the Pirats."
Robins was very close to him, and Sewall's first impulse was to take him by the hair.
Was it my new feeling of sisterhood that so elated me—or was it, more, Mrs. Sewall's capitulation?
For all the time that Sewall was on his back, he acted like a model of the virtues.
She was born in 1664, and at the time of Sewall's courtship of her was fifty-six and he sixty-nine.
He had only five men to help him; Sewall and Dow and Rowe and two others.
All arrangements had been made and all expenses assumed by the local suffrage society under the leadership of Mrs. Sewall.
Mrs. Sewall had brought her three-year-old daughter with her.
Madam Winthrop did not marry Judge Sewall, nor any one else.
"I never wanted to fool away anybody else's money," Sewall added.
