A complete and authentic issue of The New York Gazette, or, The Weekly Post-Boy, March 20, 1769, 4pp., disbound. Reports are from around the colonies, New Haven, Boston, Savannah ... Of particular interest is the unrest in Boston as detailed in this pg 2 report which prints nine resolutions opposing the colonists which oppose the British rule. In small part, "...do import a denial of, or to draw into question, the power and authority of his majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the lords spiritual and temporal, and commons, in parliament assembled, to make laws and statutes of sufficient force and validity, to bind the colonies and people of America, subjects to the crown of Great Britain, in all cases whatsoever, are illegal, unconstitutional, and derogatory of the rights of the crown and parliament of Great Britain. ... are proceedings of a most unwarrantable and dangerous nature, calculated to inflame the minds of his majesty's subjects in the other colonies, tending to create unlawful combinations repugnant to the laws of Great Britain, and subversive of the constitution. ... that it appears, that neither the council of the said province of Massachusetts Bay, nor the ordinary civil magistrates, did exert their authority for suppressing the said riot and tumults. ... that the declarations, resolutions, and proceedings, in the town meeting at Boston, on the fourteenth of June, and twelfth of September, were illegal and unconstitutional, and calculated to excite sedition and insurrections in his majesty's province of Massachusetts Bay. ..." British troops had been stationed in the Province of Massachusetts Bay since 1768 in order to support crown-appointed officials and to enforce unpopular Parliamentary legislation.
