Bremer, Francis J. 2003. John Winthrop: America's Forgotten Founding Father. New York, NY: Oxford University Press.This is a very well documented source. Bremer includes an "interlude" describing his interpretation of Winthrop's "Model of Christian Charity" speech (173-4) complete with endnotes explaining his citations and their credibility (431-433). Unlike other sources on the topic, Bremer suggests that Winthrop made this speech, not on the Arabella sometime during the passage to America, but rather in the Church of the Holy Rood before leaving England (173). During the pages following the descriptive interlude, Bremer notes that, despite being held one of the most important works of colonial literature by today's scholars, the "Model of Christian Charity" was not remarked upon by Winthrop's contemporaries (174). Bremer suggests that this is because the ideas within the speech were commonplace for the time (175). Most of the rest of the interlude focuses on a comparison of Winthrop's "Model of Christian Charity" with the two other famous statements about the purpose of the voyage by John Cotton: "God's Promise" and the "Humble Request" (175-184).Clinton, William Jefferson. 1994.

The page number of your citation (132), however, checks out.Mather, Cotton. 1967. Magnalia Christi Americana, Vol I. New York, NY: Russell & Russell. Mather does not mention the "Model of Christian Charity" speech anywhere (that I could see) in this book. He does provide a brief description of the Arabella (74). He also includes information about Winthrop as a man; Chapter IV is dedicated to Winthrop and describes his honor and righteousness (118-131). Of particular note is the inclusion of Winthrop's epitaph: "He was by nature a man, at once benevolent and just: most zealous for the honour of his countrymen; and to them he left an imperishable monument--the walls of Jerusalem" (131).It may be of note that while Mather ignores the "Model of Christian Charity" speech given by Winthrop, he does spend time describing the "Humble Request"--one of the three famous statements on the voyage (according to Bremer) (74). The lack of interest paid to the "Model" by someone who is a relative contemporary could prove interesting.Miller, Perry. 1956. Errand into the wilderness.

However overall I think it is a very absorbing and thought provoking piece of work and most of his analysis could still easily be relevant today. Works Cited Schieffelin, E.
