"Item. Because many of God's servants have been falsely accused concerning the judgment of the kinglike power of Christ, though I have cause to bewail my great ignorance and weakness in acting, yet I do and hope I shall, through the strength of Christ, to my dying day, adhere to the form of Church discipline agreed on by the Rev. Elders and brethern in the year 49, now in print. And to the truth of God concerning that point, let on record by that famous and Rev. servant of God, of blessed memory, Mr. Thomas Hooker, in his elaborate work called `The Survey of Church Discipline', to which most in all the churches of Christ then gathered in this colony gave their consent, as appears in the Rev. author's epistle, so at Milford, New Haven, Guilford, and those in the Bay, who could be come at in that stress of time. And, I being one who, in the name of our church, subscribed that copy, could never, (through the grace of Christ), see cause to receive any other judgment nor fall from those principles so soundly backed with Scripture, and arguments which none yet could overturn."
"Concerning my books, which I intended for my son, Benjamin, seeing his thoughts be not to attend the work of Christ in the ministry, my wish is that my son, Atwater, make his son, Joshua, a scholar, and fit him for that work, I give unto him all my Latin Books; but if not, they shall be put into my estate and disposed of as my wife and my overseers shall think fit." (See son Benjamin)
"I give to my daughter (daughter-in-law Dorothy Blackman) if she marry not John Thomas and shall take her friends' consent in the matter, or contiue a widow, five pound" The General Court nullified a marriage or contract with John Thomas, who failed, in the language of the court, to "make good his claim to that woman" [Gen. and Fam of Central NY vol. 1 p. 472]
