In this letter, received by Congress on 19 Feb. 1781, Adams listed twenty-five English
counties and nine cities and towns that had, between Dec. 1779 and 30 March, held
meetings and agreed to submit petitions in support of economic and parliamentary reform.
As the best expression of the association movement's goals, Adams included a partial
text of the principles agreed to on 28 March by a Yorkshire meeting. He also referred
to articles in London's Morning Post of 1 and 3 April.
