10. Read the passage and answer the question that follows. "Undutiful Children soon become horrid Creatures, for Unchastity, for Dishonesty, for Lying, and all manner of Abominations: And the Contempt which they cast upon the Advice of their Parents, is one thing that pulls down this Curse of God upon them. They who sin against their Parents, are sometimes by God given up to Sin against all the world beside. Mind the Most Scandalous Instances of Wickedness and Villainy; You'll ordinarily find, they were first Undutiful Children, before they fell into the rest of their atrocious Wickedness." (Cotton Mather, "The Duties of Children to Their Parents") The purpose of this passage is most likely to: A. teach people about curses upon children B. scare children into being good to their parents C. describe the consequences of misbehaving D. inspire people to do what they want to do

11. Read the passage and answer the question that follows. "We have been advised by some credible (meaning "believable") Christians yet alive, that a malefactor (meaning "person meaning harm"), accused of witchcraft as well as murder, and executed in this place more than forty years ago, did then give notice of an horrible plot against the country by witchcraft, and a foundation of witchcraft then laid, which if it were not seasonably discovered, would probably blow up, and pull down all the churches in the country. And we have now with horror seen the discovery of such a witchcraft! An army of devils is horribly broke in upon our English settlements: and the houses of the good people there are filled with the doleful (meaning "hopeless") shrieks of their children and servants, tormented by invisible hands." (Cotton Mather, "The Wonders of the Invisible World") Based on this passage, Cotton Mather is most likely a ______________. soldier servant judge minister

Read the passage and answer the question that follows. "Thus absolutely lost in thought, and dying with the very thoughts of drowning, I come up with the post, who I did not see 'til very deliberately a few paces, when we entered a thicket of trees and shrubs, and I perceived by the horse's going, we were on the decent of a hill, which, as we come nearer the bottom, 'twas totally dark with the trees that surrounded it. But I knew by the going of the horse we had entered the water, which my guide told me was the hazardous river he had told me of; and he, riding up close to my side, bid me not fear-we should be over immediately. I now rallied all my courage, knowing that I must either venture my fate of drowning, or be left like the children in the wood. So, as the post bid me, I gave reins to my nag; and sitting as steady as just before in the canoe, in a few minutes got safe to the other side, which he told me was the Narragansett country." (Sarah Kemble Knight, The Private Journal) Who is the intended audience of this passage? (Points : 3) the author herself specific to the children specific to the horse general

Read the passage and answer the question that follows. "The manner of taking possession of the silver mines, south-westward, - the conduct of the conqueror toward the natives, - and the miserable toil of many of our fellow-creatures, in those mines; have often been the subjects of my thoughts. And though I sometimes handle silver and gold as a currency, my so doing is at times attended with pensiveness, and a care that my ears may not be stopped against further instructions. I often think on the fruitfulness of the soil where we live, - the care that hath been taken to agree with the former owners, the natives, - and the conveniences this land affords for our use, - and on the numerous oppressions there are in many places; - and I feel a care that my craving may be rightly bounded, and that no wandering desire may lead me to strengthen the hands of the wicked, as to partakes of their sins. 1 Tim. v. 22." (John Woolman / Friends' Miscellany: Being A Collection of Essays and Fragments, Biographical, Epistolary, Narrative, and Historical; Designed for the Promotion of Virtue, to Preserve in Remembrance the Characters and Views of Exemplary Individuals, and to Rescue from Oblivion Though Manuscripts left by them, which may be Useful to Survivors/) The theme of this passage is to praise the conquering of the natives.
