In an article published in the Boston Gazette, in 1768, Samuel Adams voices his opinion using inductive reasoning on how the Quartering Act along with the King and his troops are eradicating a civil and sane government system that once was.

Samuel Adams’ pathos is shown when he writes, “Where the law ends, (says Mr. Locke) TYRANNY begins, if the law be transgress’d “ to anothers harm”:

In The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne talked about “...the utopian aspect of the Puritan migration to New England (Kaul p. 59).
