Places I have traveled :
January 1, 1735 (1)
I attended school until I was 13 years old and the North Writing School. I then decided to quit school to become an apprentice to my father as a goldsmith and a silversmith. (1 and 2)
North End Neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts (3)
I am an experienced silversmith, goldsmith, dentist, copperplate engraver, and store owner. (3)
I enjoy spending my free time gathering intelligence information by “watching the movements of the British.” (2)
Americans shall be free from the British. (10)
Boston, Charlestown, Lexington, and Concord (3)
“The regulars are coming out! The regulars are coming out!” (3)
Rachel Walker – Wife (4)
Robert Newman – North Church Sexton – Friend (5)
John Hancock – Friend (6 and 1)
Dr. Joseph Warren – Friend from Masonic Lodge – Leader of Boston’s Sons of Liberty (8)
William Dawes – Coworker (7)
I enjoy engraving cartoons that support the patriots cause. This particular engraving is of the Boston Massacre. I have been told that my work has been known to influence the opinions of the colonists.(3)
North Church (3)
My horse Brown Beauty
My house and courtyard in North Square (11)
Dr. Joseph Warren
Paul, I have a job for you. I need you to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock we have word that the British are about to descend upon Lexington to arrest them.
April 17, 1775
Dr. Joseph Warren I will get on that immediately. I will talk with Bently and Richardson to see if I can get a row to Charleston. I will also talk with Robert Newman the Sexton at Old North Church. We will hang two lanterns in the church steeple if the British are traveling by sea.
April 17, 1775
Paul, I saw your correspondence with Dr. Joseph Warren. We will need to work quietly to keep this under wraps, but with the help of other church officials I will hang two lanterns in the church steeple on April 18th to warn Charlestown that the British will be arriving by sea.
Thanks Newman! I will have Bently and Richardson row me across the river to Charlestown to insure that the message was received by the minutemen. If okay with you I would like to borrow your horse Brown Beauty. I will then ride to Lexington to insure that the message is transferred to Samuel Adams and John Hancock. If all goes well I should arrive sometime tonight- just in time to warn them of the British’s plans to arrest them.
