Excerpt from The Judges Cave: Being a Romance of the New Haven Colony in the Days of the Regicides, 1661

The Author invites attention to one of the most dramatic episodes of the American Colonial period -one which, singularly enough, has had too scant notice from the pen of novelist or poet.

When a child, her home was bordered by the old New Haven Green, where with other children, unconscious of the sublime tragedy hidden be neath, she played above the ancient gray stones marked E. W. And W. G. In the rear of the historic Centre Church. These stones, through tradition well authenticated by the painstaking research of Ezra Stiles, President of Yale Col lege, and by others, have always been believed to mark the resting-place of the two Regicides, Ed ward Whalley and William Goffe, who, in 1661, sought refuge in the protection of Pastor John Davenport in goodly New Haven Town.
