James Warren, by John Singleton Copley, 1761–1763 4
James Warren (1726–1808) and his wife Mercy were good friends of the Adamses, the two men sharing political confidences and a joy in the countryside whenever they could escape from the heavy demands of officeholding. Their extant correspondence begins about the time of the Boston Tea Party in 1773, although they were certainly known to each other well before then. Warren was an ardent whig, democratic in manner and attitude.
