One day Chad (Sarah’s brother) and David (Chad’s friend) came to the Bishops’ house bringing a pamphlet called Common Sense by Thomas Paine. When they reached the house they showed it to Mr. Bishop (Sarah’s father). Mr. Bishop got angry and ripped the pamphlet up. A few days later an angry mob came to the house and tar and feathered Mr. Bishop. They also lit his house and barn on fire. A few days later Mr. Bishop died because of the disaster. Troubles at Home
Sarah is accused of starting a fire and gets put in British custody. Sarah was taken over to the jail and then gets relocated to the jail with her brother but finds out that Chad is dead. On the way back to the jail Sarah suddenly takes off her shoes, holds her nose and jumps in the estuary they were crossing to get to the jail. After she dove into the freezing water, her feet struck ground and she climbed out. The soldiers crossing her shot his gun at her head but missed by an inch. She fled to the Lion and Lamb to hide.
