As Secretary of the Continental Congress, Thomson had gathered much valuable information for the purpose of writing a history of his times. In his declining years, he destroyed nearly all his papers, leaving only those mentioned in the Bibliography of this volume. I have thus been compelled to depend chiefly upon these sources for my material. Thomson's correspondence with Franklin and Jefferson, and his papers in the collections of the New York Historical Society for the year 1878, throw considerable light 011 his relations with the Continental Congress.
