  HISTORY OF SALEM I wifh I may not be judged for faying fo: There was fix or feven thoufand Hearers, and the Circumftances fit for fuch good Work; But I am tender; there I had fome Trouble, who could not conform to all; and went to Holland. where I was five or fix Years, not without the prefence of God in my Work; but many of my Acquaintance going for New-England, had engaged me to come to them when they fent, which accordingly I did : And truly, my reafon for my felf and others to go, was meerly not to offend Authority in that difference of Judgment; and had not the Book for Encouragement of Sports on the Sabbath come forth, many had ftaid. That good Man. my dear firm Friend, Mr. White of Dorchefter, and Bifhop Lake, occafioned, yea founded, that Work, and much in reference to the Indians, of which we did not fail to attempt, with good Succefs to many of their Souls (through Gods Bleffing.) See Bifhop Lake's Sermon. I King. 8.37. who profeft to Mr. White of Dorchester, he would go himfelf with us, but for his Age, for which he had the late Kings gracious Patent, Licence and Encouragement.
  Mr. Peters was one of the earliest members of the MA Bay Company, and subscribed, in May, 1698 to its joint stock. He was one of the fourteen who signed the first instructions to Governor Endecott, Sept. 13, 1628; and also attended two meetings of the Company, in England. in May, 1629. Mr. Peters was at that time, pastor of the English Independent church in Rotterdam, Holland. If he had been in London or some other place near there, so that he could have been consulted readily, he might have been the first pastor or teacher of the church in Salem; but he was far away and it was uncertain when he would return.
  Sir William Brereton visited Rotterdam in 1634, and in his "Travels" calls Peter a "right zealous and worthy man."1
  Mr. Peters, having been in ill-health for several years and under surveillance of the bishop for his interest in Puritanism, determined to visit America, at least. It is doubtful if his wife Elizabeth came with him. She was the widow of Col. Edmund Reade of Essex, England, and probably daughter of Thomas Cooke of Pebmarsh. She was apparently older than Mr. Peter. Among the children of Colonel Reade were Thomas, a colonel in the parliamentary army and governor of Stirling, and associated with Monk at the restoration; Margaret, wife of John Lake of Ipswich, Mass.; Martha, wife of Daniel Epes and Samuel Symonds, respectively; and Elizabeth, wife of John Winthrop, jr. It was this latter marriage that caused Governor Winthrop to address Mr. Peter as "brother."2
