America’s First Spy?

Share

Patience Lovell…

Patience fell from royal favor because of her open support for the American Colonies. During the Revolutionary War, she opened her London home to American prisoners of war and corresponded frequently with Benjamin Franklin. It is believed that she hid secret messages in the wax sculptures that she sent to her sister, who was running a wax museum in Philadelphia.

Found on History of American Women.
