In this article, the writer looks at John Josselyn's view of Puritanism in New England as a Royalist Anglican natural historian, brother of the chief magistrate of Maine. The writer maintains that Josselyn wrote objectively and often positively of the various Native people he encountered, less well of the Puritans to have obtained great power. One sees his detailed observation, ability to think objectively on the Aboriginal people, seeing them as different, as opposed to inferior or primitive.
