A complete and authentic issue of the Gentleman's Magazine, June 1774, 56pp., disbound, VG. From the interior, there is an historic report on the "Second" Boston Tea Party which occurred on March 7, 1774, in part, "The brig Fortune, Capt. Gorham, from London, having on board 28 chests and a half of the East India Company's tea arrived at Boston some time in March last, but the owners having protested against landing the tea & the custom-house officers refusing the necessary papers for returning the tea to London, a number of men, disguised in the habit of Indians, entered the ship & emptied every chest into the sea. At New York, 18 boxes, on board...was served in the same manner." ... Also under "Historical Chronicle" is a brief mention of bills which received the royal assent, including: "...for providing quarters for the officers and soldiers in America..." which was the hated Quartering Act. ... and also under American Affairs, "Governor Hutchinson .. refused his consent to the grants that passed the House for the payment of salaries due to the agents ... one of whom, Benjamin Franklin (in 1774, Benjamin Franklin was dismissed as joint Postmaster General for the Crown because he was judged too sympathetic to the colonies). A second Boston Tea Party took place in March 1774, when around 60 Bostonians boarded the ship Fortune and dumped nearly 30 chests of tea into the harbor. The event didn't earn nearly as much notoriety as the first Boston Tea Party, but it did encourage other tea-dumping demonstrations in Maryland, New York and South Carolina.
