Writing History Denton wrote and published ''A Brief Description of New-York: Formerly Called New-Netherlands'' in London in 1670. The work was a promotional tract designed to encourage English (England) settlement of territories recently seized from the Dutch (Netherlands). It is one of the earliest English accounts of the geography, climate, economy, and native inhabitants of the region that includes present-day New York City, Long Island, Staten Island, and New Jersey. The tract is perhaps most famous for its early statement of Manifest Destiny: how "a Divine Hand makes way for them the English settlers by removing or cutting off the Indians, either by Wars one with the other, or by some raging mortal Disease." Denton had emigrated to America in the 1640s and was involved in land speculation in the region.
