"At the brave defence of Wells by Captain Converse..., one John Diamond was taken prisoner by the Indians, and dragged away by his hair into the thickets. After their humiliating defeat, in their 'nefandous rage,' the savages put their captive to the most dreadful tortures. "They stripped him," writes Cotton Mather, 'they scalped him alive; they slit him with knives between his fingers and toes; they made cruel gashes in the most fleshy parts of his body, and stuck the gashes with firebrands, which were after found sticking in the wounds.'" [source: Magnalia by Cotton Mather]
