Breslaw, Elaine G. "Wit, Whimsy, and Politics: The Uses of Satire by the Tuesday Club of Annapolis, 1744 to 1756." William and Mary Quarterly, 3d series, 32 (April 1975): 295-306.
Annotation / Notes: An introduction to the group of Annapolis wits whose humorous proceedings have survived in a manuscript at the Johns Hopkins University. The antics of the Tuesday Club open a window on the climate of civil discourse that characterized the Golden Era in Annapolis. In contrast to the political tensions that would soon led to revolution, club members employed parodies to mock political conventions. The actual minutes of the club as edited by Professor Breslaw have been published as the Records of the Tuesday Club, 1745 - 1756.
