Hello, I need help with this question! I'm not asking for answers, I just need to know where to look to find my answer! Help me please?

Read the following passage. In 3–5 sentences, identify who wrote it. Support your choice with details about the content or style of the passage.

"One day, when all our people were gone out to their works as usual, and only I and my dear sister were left to mind the house, two men and a woman got over our walls, and in a moment seized us both, and, without giving us time to cry out, or make resistance, they stopped our mouths, and ran off with us into the nearest wood. Here they tied our hands, and continued to carry us as far as they could, till night came on, when we reached a small house, where the robbers halted for refreshment, and spent the night. We were then unbound, but were unable to take any food; and, being quite overpowered by fatigue and grief, our only relief was some sleep, which allayed our misfortune for a short time. The next morning we left the house, and continued travelling all the day. For a long time we had kept the woods, but at last we came into a road which I believed I knew. I had now some hopes of being delivered; for we had advanced but a little way before I discovered some people at a distance, on which I began to cry out for their assistance; but my cries had no other effect than to make them tie me faster and stop my mouth, and then they put me into a large sack."

    I've never read this before, but it sounds as if it might be from a piece of writing from the American colonies, describing what happened when Indians came in and kidnapped the two sisters.

    What colonial works have you been reading?
