A History of the American People, Vol I, The Swarming of the English, Woodrow Wilson, 1901, Ch V, The Expansion of New England, p138:
"While Maryland was being established, a county palatine, and Virginians accommodated their life and temper to the intrusion, affairs moved with stron tide in New England, and the whole face of the country was changed for the English, the Indians, and the Dutch alike. During the ten years 1630-1640, the first ten years after Mr Winthrop's company came to Boston, a great and ever-increasing immigration poured steadily in at the Bay. These were the years during which there was no Parliament in England, the years during which the government at home seemed most intolerable, and the Puritan colonies in America most inviting, to all Englishmen who took their politics and their religion seriously. No fewer than twenty thousand people came within that single decade to seek homes in New England. In 1634 fourteen ships came in at the Bay with settlers in the single month of June, and the next summer eleven came in in a single day. In 1638 three thousand immigrants arrived within a space of three months. There could be no pause in events while such a tide was running.
"Most of the new-comers found the Bay settlementsaltogether to their liking, and made their homes there very contentedly. They did not object to the strictness of the church government set up by the masterful rulers of the Massachusetts towns, for they were themselves Puritans almost to a man, and liked very well to see their own opinions made compulsory. It did not incommode them that the sterner ministers of the settlements made bold to imitate his Grace of Canterbury and silence those who differed with them. It was an age `whenevery sect demanded tolerance, yet none had the generosity to grant it,' and it was very comfortable to dwell with your own sect.
"There was a great deal besides the church in New England- a great deal to make the novel life in the wilderness stirring and interesting, and worth taking part in. The government, it was true, tried to regulate everything, just as the government at home did...But it was not so easy to enforce such regulations as it was to make them. Fishermen fishedin the open sea, upon a long coast, where there were few magistrates; fur traders carried on their barter with the Indians in the depths of the forest; merchants quietly took whatever purchasers were willing to pay; farmers used their land asthey thought most profitable and advantageous; and the simple life of the colony was freer than life in England, after all.
"There was not a little uneasiness and disquiet, nevertheless. These stirring, austere, uncompromising Puritans, who had crossed the sea to live in a wilderness rather than submit to Laud and the King, were not likely to be all of one mind, or always submissive to one another when they differed; and within less than five years after Mr Winthrop's first company had established themselves at the Bay signs of a partial breaking up began to appear...Congregations had and kept their several characters; the politics of the growing commonwealth sprang out of their differences; and their ministers were their politicians..."
