My Kinsman, Major Molineux recounts the story of a young man who has just arrived in Boston looking for his relative, the titular Major Molineux, who has promised him a job. Strangely, though, no one will tell him where he can find the major; in fact, people act offended whenever they are asked about him. Finally, the young man is told that the major will soon pass by. This story examines coming of age and the complex relationship between the American colonies and England.
