Excerpt from New Hampshire Without Provincial Government, 1689-1690: An Historical Sketch
The fall of the government of Sir Edmund Andros over New Eng land, an event in which neither the Province nor the people of New Hampshire had any part, left that Province without any government. The provincial officers of his appointment, civil and military, had no authority to act after his overthrow by the action of the people of Massachusetts. The four ancient towns, Portsmouth, Dover, Hamp ton, and Exeter, which then constituted that entire Province, were again in a state of independence, as they were when annexed to Massachusetts in the year 1641. They were now stronger in pcpu lation and in political organization. Fifty years' experience had given them an almost perfect system of domestic self-government. But for the exigencies of the times, which required a bond of political union, and unity of action, they might have remained in their independent state without inconvenience, so well regulated were their, domestic concerns, and orderly their inhabitants.
