Winthrop tells us, in 1634,— It being found that the four Lectures did spend too much time, and proved overburden — some to the ministers and people, the ministers, with the advice of the magistrates, and with the consent of their congregations, did agree to reduce them to two days, viz.: Mr. Cotton one Thursday, or the 5th day of the week, and Mr. Hooker at New Town the next 5th day; and Mr. Warham at Dorchester one 4th day of the week, and Mr. Welde at Roxbury, the next 4th day.

It has already been mentioned in the preceding chapter, that Mr. Hooker and a large proportion of his church removed from New Town in 1635 and 1636; and that Mr. Shepard with another company purchased their houses and lands. Among the reasons which swayed him to come to New England, Mr. Shepard says in his Autobiography, Divers people in Old England of my dear friends desired me to, and with the consent of their congregations, did agree to reduce them to two days, viz.: Mr. Cotton one Thursday, or the 5th day of the week, and Mr. Hooker at New Town the next 5th day; and Mr. Warham at Dorchester one 4th day of the week, and Mr. Welde at Roxbury, the next 4th day.
