This is doubtless the reason why John and Samuel Eddy within two weeks of landing at Plymouth left for the Bay Colony. they wished to settle near their friends and acquaintances. At this time there was an agreement between the two colonies that a man must carry letters of dismissal from one colony before he could be received as an inhabitant by the other. John and Samuel did not carry those letters with them and so were obliged to return to Plymouth, with John Grant and Capt. Standish.

      Sometime previous to Feb. 26, 1631/32 John eddy procured the necessary letters of dismissal and was received into the Bay Colony. He joined the settlement at Watertown, which was rapidly growing to be the largest in New England. A letter which Gov. Bradford of Plymouth wrote to Gov Winthrop, regarding the dismissal of several men from the colony is found in the Chamberlain Collection at the Boston Public Library.... [1]
