1655, Abstract of laws and government
1655 Abstract of Laws and Government collected by John Cotton from Scriptures and presented to the General Court of Massachusetts; published
posthumously by William Aspinwall. Of note, Aspinwall included in his preface the three points which were the underpinnings of these "righteous" law: that
the laws are invariable and bind all; indispensable by any created powers; and that they bind both outward actions and spirit and conscience. Margin
notes of the sources were also included in this abstract. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Pennsylvania Historical
Society Library (c.1) and the Boston Public Library (c.2)).
