      Text: "On May 13, 1704, near daybreak, Pascomuck* village was attacked by a war party of fifty Indians and about twenty Frenchmen under Sieur de Montigney. The inhabitants were completely surprised for the Indians had approached near enough to place their guns through the portholes of the buildings before the sleepers were aroused. Some were killed, others wounded and, when the torch was applied to their homes, the survivors, seeing that resistance was useless, surrendered and were taken captive, and the little village became a thing of the past."
      *"Pascomuck was near Northampton, but separated from it by water at the time owing to a spring freshet. The village then had a population of thirty-three consisting of five families. It is not a part of Easthampton."
      "Upon receipt of this information, Captain John Taylor, with a troop of mounted volunteers from among the citizens (in Northampton) immediately started in pursuit. Riding in advance of his men, he was shot at first fire. Several of the men were wounded and, disheartened, they gave up the pursuit and returned home with the body of their slain commander. The Indians made good their threat* by knocking all but five or six of their captives on the head."
      *Of the thirty-three residents of Pascomuck village nineteen were killed, three escaped, eight were rescued and three were taken to Canada. Of those whom they knocked on the head, several survived and of these one who was scalped lived to the age of eighty."
