Item Information

Title:
Letter from Samuel Adams to James Warren, 27 November 1772
Description:
In Boston's Footsteps As copies of the "Boston Pamphlet" begin to circulate in Massachusetts, residents in various towns petition their selectmen to consider the document and its arguments. In Plymouth, one hundred inhabitants sign a petition requesting a meeting. Other towns, however, are reluctant to act immediately in case the information concerning the payment of judicial salaries by the crown is incorrect. Eager to publicize any news of support, Samuel Adams shares the latest developments with James Warren, who has just been elected chairman of Plymouth's new "committee of communication".
