In 1662, a new treaty was negotiated with Philip, now chief of the tribe. Under the pact, Philip accepted the authority of the Crown and promised not to sell land except to buyers approved by the colony. John Eliot also stepped up efforts to convert Philip and the Wampanoags, but he failed to make much progress.
