    Letter from Hannah Winthrop (baptized 1727- 1790), in Watertown, Mass., to Mercy Otis Warren (1728–1814), in Plymouth, Mass., 30 September 1775, thanking her and her husband for finding them a place to live in Concord while Mr. Winthrop recovered from an illness. She shares her concerns over the state of affairs between England and the colonies and asks "How long shall these Tyrants reign & the poor oppressd inhabitants of America groan under the Iron Yoke?"
