The Committee of Correspondence

Day 21

“The committee of Correspondence is purely an American Invention It is and Invention of Mr. Samuel Adams, who first conceived the Thought, made the first Motion in Boston Town Meeting and was himself chosen the first chairman of a committee of correspondence, that ever existed among men.”

~John Adams~
To Thomas Diggers

Soon after the committee of Correspondence where started by Samuel Adams in Boston, in 1772, all the other colonies but Pennsylvania organized their own.
