"Before God and man I will avouch the deed," answered Endicott. "Beat a flourish, drummer% Shout soldiers and people% In honor of the ensign of New England. Neither Pope nor Tyrant hath part in it now%" With a cry of triumph, the people gave their sanction to one of the boldest exploits which our history records. And, forever honored be the name of Endicott% We look back through the mist of ages, and recognise, in the rending of the Red Cross from New England's Banner, the first omen of that deliverance which our fathers consummated, after the bones of the stern Puritan had lain more than a century in the dust." Vide Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales. [P. 4.]
