Excerpt from A New England Miracle, or Seekers After Truth: A Tale of the Days of King Philip These meetings, which were like Open forums, gave suggestion to the folkmote, and the folkmote to the building of a free nation in the days of Samuel Adams and Thomas Jefferson. William Blackstone, the seeker after truth, founded Boston in an apple orchard which he himself planted. He brought there the first English roses, and he began to cultivate his retreat on Study Hill, R. I., in the same beautiful way. He tamed Indians, beasts, and birds he lived for the soul, and brought all living things of his forest home into association with his own character. He opposed the religious intolerance and superstition of the colonies, and maintained an almost ideal Christian life. John Myles, the Welsh Baptist exile, was his neighbor, and the Welshman founded the near towns in the spirit of universal liberty.
