The link to the Culper Spy Ring of Long Island, New York is Rev. Elliot's mention of General Parsons continually receiving information from the Sound where Caleb Brewster (a Culper Spy) is known to deliver intelligence to Fairfield Connecticut (Rev. Elliot's residence and association with major secret enclave organizer "Thaddeus Burr").  All of these names are connected with the Spy Chief, Benjamin Tallmadge who in his memoirs spoke of forays with Gen. Parson and Caleb Brewster.  Discover the historic link never before brought to light!

MISSING LINKS TO THE CULPER SPY RING
Reviewed by: STEPHANIE BAIL (2/26/2005)
Bernadine Fawcett's new book, Missing Links to the Culper Spy Ring?, is a fascinating read. Not only does she make a solid argument for her premise that Rev. Andrew Eliot of Connecticut and his father the Rev. Andrew Eliot of Boston were indeed part of the famed Culper Spy Ring, her inclusion of the actual letters sent from son to father depict the actual day to day life of an early American family dealing with the tumultuous events of the American Revolution. Whether or not you are convinced by the main argument offered by the author, the letters alone will be well worth a reading of this book, as they bring to life a turbulent time in American history as only a primary source can.

MISSING LINKS CREATES A NEW WRITING GENRE
Reviewed by: Betsy Quint-Feldman (5/8/2005)
I am reviewing Missing Links to the Culper Spy Ring: by Bernadine Fawcett. "Missing Links" is a footnoted collection of handwritten and typeset letters and photographs that retell details of the American Revolutionary War, not by means of folklore or quantitative timelines; but through letters that were sent between a father and son in 18th century Connecticutt. These letters are true primary source gemstones, because they immerse the reader in the language, religion, and belief system of a time period which didn't have access to computer, photography, or videotape. In a world where we have become overly dependent on microwaves, video camera cell phones, and cars, authoress, BernadineFawcett has reminded us of a way of life that has been long forgotten. In the 1700s people depended on crops to survive, candles to see, word of mouth to hand down family history, and letters to pass information. It is noteworthy that the authoress acquired these documents through a step inlaw. I am touched that she had the great vision to undertake the task of interpreting the data in the letters. Her work is a true labor of love and respect for her husband's heritage, as well as a validation of our American identity. I am very thankful that I read "Missing Links." It gave me a chance to eavesdrop without tapping a phone, and the book also made me want to honor our country by reading more secondary sources about the American Revolutionary War. In summation: I would recommend this book to ages 16 and up. It provides the reader with a journey through time that makes us thankful for the brave efforts of our first settlers. The format of the book is credible and the type provides for easy reading. I must commend Bernadine Fawcett for creating a poignant genre of a letter reading extravaganza. I have never read a book quite like this before, and it just happens to be that I read the during the most stressful month of my life and the book held my attention. I am pondering using some of the letters as Listening Comprehension activities, as I am a Reading Teacher. When I'm not in the classroom, I'm writing letters, just like the characters; but my letters are emails. B. Quint-Feldman/ Reading and Special Education New York City Teacher
