She was theMoreExcerpt from Revolutionary Ancestry: Mercy Warren Chapter, Daughters of the American RevolutionMercy Warren, from whom this Chapter takes its name, was one of the most highly educated, brilliant, and influential women of her day. She was the daughter of Col. James Otis of Barnstable, Mass. This Otis family came to America sometime between 1730 and 1740 and settled at first in Hingham. The youth of Mercy Otis was passed in the routine of domestic employments and duties which naturally devolved upon her as the oldest daughter in a family of high respectability.

She was always fond of reading and early became especially interested in history. In 1754 she married James Warren, then a merchant in Plymouth. With her husband, she became deeply interested in political matters. At their home were entertained as frequent visitors the most prominent patriots of the Revolutionary period. Mrs. Warrens friendship was much prized by such men as Jefferson, Samuel and John Adams, and Gen. Knox. She corresponded with these and other leaders of the Revolution, and by them was not infrequently asked her opinion in political matters. The plan of the Committees of Safety and Correspondence was suggested in the home of Mr.

and Mrs. Warren in a conversation with Samuel Adams and James Otis, and was quietly carried into effect by Adams. In 1790 Mercy Warren published a volume of Poems, Dramatic and Miscellaneous, dedicated to Gen. Washington, who was her personal friend. It included two tragedies, which were well thought of in their time, and a number of shorter pieces. One of these, called The Squabble of the Sea Nymphs, describes the Boston Tea Party.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
