Mistress Bradstreet never again saw her beloved England.  Over decades, she slowly accepted America.
 ….
Other emigres included Anne’s mother Dorothy Yorke Dudley and father, Thomas Dudley along with her sisters and brother.
  ….
Gov. Winthrop recited a “city on the hill, the eyes of all people are upon us ” offering ways to live in the New World.
 …
All gave thanks for a safe voyage and prayed for strength in their new adventures.
