The troubling tea situation in America...

Item # 645993

January 29, 1774

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Jan. 29, 1774 

* Referencing the Boston Tea Party
* Pre Revolutionary War tensions

An inside page has reports from the House of Commons which seems to deal with the importation of wheat, flour, corn etc. to & from the American colonies, which includes: "...our harvest last year was but bad & we could not spare any to the colonies North America was sure to rise their market to an enormous height...allowing a limited exportation would be of service, as it would be a curb upon the avarice & cruelty of the North Americans..." & more, taking about a full column.
Another pg. has over a full column report from Philadelphia concerning the tea situation, beginning: "... to inform the town that the tea ship with her detested cargo was arrived there...committee which had been previously appointed to manage the business of preventing the landing of the tea..." and "...this Assembly highly approve of the conduct & spirit of the people of New York, Charles Town & Boston & return their hearty thanks to the people of Boston for their resolution in destroying the tea rather than suffering it to be landed."  with more on the tea situation (see photos).
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition. Some nice content relating to the Boston Tea Party and the troubling tea situation in the colonies. To find this content in an American newspaper would be $400 or more.
