Background

As reprinted in the NEHGR, the story is that the author Milford Streeter advertised for the bible listed in the estate record of Stephen Streeter, taken in 1652. A Mr. John Hayes Goodwin wrote that he had found in a second-hand bookstore a bible printed at Edinburgh in 1693 that had some Streeter records. Mr. Goodwin sent the author a copy of the records in the bible in 1930. Mr. Griffin did not buy the bible, and was not able to find it again at the secondhand shop.
