Excerpt: ...of them opposed any "popish leagues,/' quoting, along with other texts, the speech of Jehu, the seer, to Jehoshaphat: " Shouldst thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord?" And also from Proverbs: " He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears."

These arguments prevailed; La Tour waa Ag. allowed to hire at Boston four ships and a pinnace, with eighty men; and, thus re-enforced, he raised the blockade of St. John's, and pursued D'Aulney to Port Royal, where the Boston men landed and committed some dep-mlations.
