1105 words - 4 pages

Dear Aunt SallyI am deeply sorry I have not written to you for such a long time. It has been eleven long years since we have last chatted. Ever since you moved back to Virginia things have gone a little out of hand. I am no longer a young boy, but a fully grown adult soon to reach 22 in the coming month. I am still living at home with my Mom and Dad, in the same little apartment over the butchers shop in Boston. Except now my bed is being used by a British soldier named Chester, who already over stayed his welcome years ago. Life is not easy; I bust my chaps left and right working close to nothing at the old print shop. As tight as money is right now, I can not afford to keep feeding Chester, as he does nothing all day long but drink tea. If that is not bad enough, I now have to work twice as hard since Pa got sick with small pox. Hopefully he will be better next Wednesday after he visits the doctor to get his sick blood drained.

A couple drinks later, I was fully part of the Sons of Liberty. That is what we call our selves. Our main goal is to make sure people are boycotting the products that the King keeps taxing us on. We do this by any means necessary, most of the time we do get a little violent to get our point across. Although my job in the gang is to get as much British propaganda out onto the streets of Boston as humanly possible. This really makes me proud to see the angered faces of the Brits when they see their King insulted on every page of the Boston Times. I am not sure if you heard about this event but about four years ago on March 5 1770 the Brits went too far. It was a cold day with a little drizzle in the sky, what started out as small bar fight turned to a massacre. A fellow member of the Sons of Liberty got into a little scuffle with a Brit over a silly reason of spilled beer. Next thing we know the Brit calls over a bunch of his friends and they come out at as with weapons drawn. Rather than taking it sitting down, we laughed at them and poked fun of their stupid uniforms. As matter got...
