John led himself and groups of English puritans to the new world away from the persecution of the British empire in 1630, during the Puritan Migration. While on their voyage to the new world, Winthrop preached his most famous sermon "A Model of Christian Charity" also known as "City upon a Hill", in an attempt to bond the puritan members and to discuss the influence god has given them, and to set an example of communal charity and unity to the world.

Barry uses repetition to emphasize the importance of proficiency needed to successfully be a scientist during the flu epidemic. For example, in the second paragraph, Barry repeats the term courage to declare that in order to be a scientist, one must “accept—indeed, embrace—uncertainty” (Barry), signifying the unknown dangers that arise with the profession.

Barry lectures to his audience about how in the realm of science a person must have the courage to be innovative, Barry states, "To be a scientist requires not only intelligence and curiosity, but passion, patience, creativity, self-sufficiency, and courage" (Barry 6-8). Barry uses scholarly diction to get his point across when inferring about how a scientist must explore the unknown. Barry states, "The less known, the more one has to manipulate and even force experiments to yield an answer" (Barry 66-68). With Barry’s borderline lecturing, he adds in metaphors, which the audience has to then work to uncover its hidden meaning.

By doing this, he starts with the truth, but ends by motivating the audience of how it isn’t the end.
