Each week the line became more marked between the Tories and those whose sympathies lay with the country in its struggles, which now tended more and more openly - and inevitably - toward independence. The influence of the Committee of Correspondence in giving form to the Solemn League and Covenant drew attention to its power, and a town meeting was held on June 27th in Boston, which continued all that day and a part of the next, while the Tory merchants made one last rally against the Committee, urging its dismissal. Rowe notes the debates as "very warm on both sides." The Committee were opposed by Messrs. Treasurer Gray, Thomas Gray, Saml. Barrat, Edw. Paine, Francis Greene, John Amory, Saml. Eliot, and Ezek. Goldthwait; and upheld by Saml. Adams, Josiah Quincy, Drs. Warren and Young, Benj. Kent, and Wm. Monlineaux.

Says Andrews: "For my own part, I did not expect the vote would have been put as it was; i.e., to censure and dismiss ye Committee; but rather expected it would tend only to order them to suspend ye Covenant till ye Congress should meet."
