Nov. 29, 1776, On this day Samuel Adams

Nov. 29, 1776, On this day Samuel Adams notifies his wife Betsy that he is on the king’s most-wanted list. “I am told that Lord Howe has lately issued a proclamation offering a general pardon with the exception of only four persons: viz Dr Franklin, Col Richard Henry Lee, Mr John Adams & myself. . . If it be a fact I am greatly obliged to his Lordship for the flattering opinion he has given me of myself as being a person obnoxious to those who are desolating a once happy country for the sake of extinguishing the remaining lamp of liberty . . and for the singular honor he does me in ranking me with men so eminently patriotic.” revolution240.com http://ow.ly/i/eEY0w
