1921. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER V Massachusetts Bay In The Seventeenth
Century Bibliography The history of settlement around Massachusetts
Bay prior to the great emigration is to be gleaned from "Mourt's
Relation"; Bradford's "History of the Plymouth Plantation" (for
both see page 40); "A Brief Relation, ..." by Sir Ferdinando Gorges
(1622, edited by J. P. Baxter, A.M. in "Prince Society
Publications," Vol. I, 1890); Winthrop's "Journal"; and Thomas
Morton's "New English Canaan" (for both see.below). A Paper on "Old
Planters" by C. F. Adams is to be found in "Proc. Mass. Hist. Soc."
Vol. XVI, pp. 194-206. "The Planters Plea, ..." (1630--Force,
"Tracts and Papers," Vol. II, Tract III; in part, Young's
"Chronicles of... Massachusetts Bay,") usually attributed to the
Rev. John White, gives 'Ground of Plantations Examined, usual
Objections answered, Together with a manifestation of the causes
mooving such as have lately undertaken a Plantation in New
England.' Higginson's Journal of the voyage of 1629 is embodied in
"A True Relation of the Last Voyage to New England, ..." (Young's
"Chronicles"). The Company's letters of instructions to Endicott
and his Council, the Instrument of Government for the Colony, the
allotment of lands, oaths of office, and contract between the
Company and the ministers, are all to be found among these
"Chronicles"; also "New England's Plantation" (1630) by Higginson
and "General Considerations or Conclusions" (1629), assigned by
Salvage to Governor Winthrop. Deputy Governor Dudley's letter to
the Countess of Lincoln (ibid.) gives a fine insight into affairs
up to date of writing, March, 1631. In his "Advertisements for the
unexperienced Planters of New England or Anywhere" (1631) Captain
Smith refers to the trying experiences of the Charleston-Salem
