1. When Warren, 21-year-old son of James and Mercy (Otis) Warren, was about to embark in the brigantine Pallas, scheduled to sail from Boston on 20 May, his mother wrote AA offering her the opportunity of sending letters by him to JA (Mercy Warren to AA , 8 May 1781 [i.e. 1780] , Adams Papers). AA embraced the chance, but the letters were doubtless lost when Warren was captured; see the following note.
