Page 6 has most of a column taken up with reports from Philadelphia concerning non-importation, including: "Unanimously Resolved, That the committee shall not be at liberty to receive and store any goods consigned after the agreement of the Merchants & Traders here not to import, was known in Great Britain, not such as were ordered after the 6th of February last..." and further that: "...if any person shall receive goods consigned from Great Britain...until the late Revenue Acts against America re repealed, shall be deemed an enemy to the liberties of America...".
Eight pages, 8 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.
