The Reverend John Williams<!--ObjectID=538-->' account of his captivity following the Deerfield Raid was published in seven editions and was considered a "best seller" in the 18th century. Published in 1774, this fifth edition of "The Redeemed Captive Returning to Zion" contains the Deerfield minister's account of his captivity and redemption, the sermon preached by him in December, 1706, upon his return to Boston, and an appendix that details the fate of the other captives taken in 1704. He returned to Boston on November 21, 1706, and removed to Deerfield within three weeks, in January 1707, to resume his pastoral duties. The town voted to build him another house to replace the one burned in the attack. The meetinghouse, built in 1695, was still standing.
