Anne Hutchinson and her allies are supporting Henry Vane.

Winthrop's son is supporting him obviously.

 "Rev. Thomas Shepard of Newtown (Cambridge) warns Rev. John Cotton of Boston that his "Free Grace" theology is misconstrued by the laity, which may develop into a larger problem.

Three men are given six lashes for drunkeness" 

John Endicott leads protest of Gov. Vane's decision to fly English flag at the Fort in Boston, since Cross of St. George looks Catholic

Rev. Roger Williams's settlement in Providence (Rhode Island) is said to be doing well. We wish the best for our misguided friend.

It was fun making this scenario. I went through all the record books for the government at this time to find these events. 

Did you visit the archives or was there books that republished them?

I found the books online. Fortunately, it was typed out as the handwriting would be hard to read. I had intended to do elections from 1630-1776 for Massachusetts. Then I I realized that would take forever, so I did this one as the most interesting. The next most interesting would be the 1676 (King Phillip's War), and the 1692--I think--(Salem Witch Trials), and then any during the French and Indian War, and then any during the Rev War. 

I just don't have time to make any new PI scenarios or update my scenarios as I'm making a new game.

"The General Court organizes three militia to protect the colony against possible Pequot attack."

The three militia to be led each by John Winthrop, John Haynes and John Endicott with Gov. Vane commanding. Thomas Dudley, Roger Harlakenden, and John Winthrop, Jr. will assist the militia heads.

Rev. Wheelwright clearly under the spell of Anne Hutchinson.
