James Rivington BIBLIOGRAPHY AND SOURCES James Rivington Sources The William and Mary Quarterly Third Series, Vol. 16, No. 1 (Jan., 1959), pp. 61-72 Published by: Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture http://www.jstor.org/stable/1918851 Later, as Rivingon was escorting the party to the door, he is supposed to have said: “Your excellency may rely upon my especial attention being given to the agricultural works, which, on their arrival, will be immediately forwarded to Mount Vernon, where I trust they will contribute to your gratification amid the shades of domestic retirement.” (62) Lossing told of Rivington’s ingenious device for passing information to headquarters by writing his secret billets on thin paper and binding them in the covers of books. Rivington then sold the books to Washington’s agents, who were continually visiting New York, and they, ignorant of the messages they carried, delivered them to their commander. (63)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
