Your an amazing writer. You should write a pamphlet on independence.
On November 30, 1774, the ship London Packet arrived at the port of Philadelphia. On board was a 37-year-old Englishman named Thomas Paine.
Can u print my pamphlet
With the help of Franklin's introduction, Paine soon landed a job as the editor of a new magazine. He had already done some writing in England. But it was here that he discovered his true calling as a writer.
We shall unite. We have the power to begin the world over again
We have to have a self-governing nation based on principles of liberty.
We should have independence.
Rush encouraged Paine to write a pamphlet on independence, though he cautioned him not to use that word. In October 1775, he began working on the essay he would call Common Sense.
Paine found a publisher who agreed to print a thousand copies as a pamphlet. It was 46 pages long. The pamphlet did not have Paine's name on the cover, but simply said, “written by an Englishman.” On January 10, 1776, Common Sense appeared in bookstores.
Paine argued that the colonists should unite around a common goal, to create a self-governing nation based on principles of liberty. “We have it in our power to begin the world over again,” he wrote.
Paine's work opened up the debate on separation from Great Britain. It helped many colonists see independence as a real possibility.
