    Letter from Hannah Winthrop in Concord, Mass. to Mercy Otis Warren, 20 January 1776, describing the pleasure she derives from their correspondence and discussing domestic affairs of each of their families. She also expresses her hopes that "many… Britannia Sons who wish well to America" will have their voices heard "under the cruel restrictions of despotism," referring to reports in recently-arrived London newspapers of Parliamentary debates.
