Professor Hall will show how the diaries of people such as Samuel Sewall and Cotton Mather along with the notebooks of John Hull, help us understand how early Boston functioned. These sources illuminate how puritans led their lives and how others disputed or agreed with them as some groups, such as merchants, were more attuned to England than to any local heritage.
