Colonial Boston...



Item # 585315

March 14, 1768

THE BOSTON CHRONICLE, March 14, 1768  Inside has a report from Providence that: "...this colony...have appointed a committee to draw up an address to his Majesty & write to the Ministry & our Agent relative to the peculiar hardships & distresses the colonies are not labouring under." Other various news of the day from both Europe and the colonies.
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 10 1/4 inches, very nice condition. A fine opportunity for a colonial Boston newspaper at a very reasonable price.
This newspaper published only briefly from December 21, 1767 until 1770. The publishers, John Mein and John Fleeming, were both from Scotland. The Chronicle was a Loyalist paper in the time before the American Revolution. In its second year, Mein printed names in the paper that accused some colonial merchants of breaking a British non-importation agreement. In response, Mein's name appeared on a list of merchants who violated the trade agreement. Mein retaliated by accusing the Merchants' Committee of using the non-importation agreement for illegal profiteering. The irritated readership ransacked the offices of the Chronicle, and ultimately, it ceased operations in 1770. (credit Wikipedia)
