Excerpt from Chambers's Miscellany of Useful and Entertaining Tracts: Vols. 19-20
Thompson was well received by General Gage and the o¿icers Of the British army; and his intercourse with them, while it probably gave him a stronger bias towards the side of the mother country t... han he had yet exhibited, did not contribute to remove the bad opinion his countrymen had formed of his patriotism. Having returned in the spring of 1775 to his native town Of Woburn, where he was joined by his wife and daughter, he again ran the risk of being tarred and feathered. The mob surrounded the house where he resided early one morning, armed with guns and sticks, and but for the interference of his old friend Loammi Baldwin, who arrived at the spot in time to use his in¿uence with the crowd, serious consequences might have ensued.
