Johnny Tremain

What is Johnny's mobility like? Why is he sent to listen to the outcome of the town meeting?

Two different questions but for the first one, I just don't understand how to answer it because it is kind of a broad category. For the second, isn't it to determine whether the Sons of Liberty will throw the tea into the harbor? Anyways, thank you guys! -Sarah

Johnny is allowed to move around the town somewhat freely since with his hand, he seems useless and so is not seen as a threat to anyone. He can pretty much come and go.

The town meeting has to do with whether or not the king and the Tories will allow the citizens to have more freedom from such things as repressive taxes. He is carrying back a message that will, indeed, motivate the people into performing the planned Tea Party.
