Nevv Englands First Fruits
Missionary work among the native population in New England did not begin in earnest until several years after English settlements had been established at Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay. New England’s First Fruits is the colonists’ response to English criticism about the lack of evangelical work being performed in New England. Colonists asserted that they first needed to build homes, secure food, form a government, and establish an institution of higher education before turning their attention to missionary work.
Some attribute this work to John Eliot though the author is anonymous.
