    Thorowgood's answer to Hamon L'Estrange's Americans no Jews, or Improbabilities that the American's are of that Race. (London, 1652), which was itself a repudiation of Thorowgood's earlier Jews in America (London, 1650). This work is entirely independent of the first. Thorowgood presents John Eliot's Conjectures as an argument in support of his theory.
