“What journeyings on foot and on horseback through the wilderness, to preach the gospel to these minks and muskrats! who first, no doubt, listened with their red ears out of a natural hospitality and courtesy, and afterward from curiosity or even interest, till at length there were praying Indians, and, as the General Court wrote to Cromwell, the work is brought to this perfection that some of the Indians themselves can pray and prophesy in a comfortable manner.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
