Information of the Boston Port Bill


Charlestown, South Carolina, May 31, 1774.

This morning a packet was received here, despatched from on board the brigantine Sea Nymph, Captain Moore, from a very respectable Committee at Philadelphia, enclosing letters from the Committees, and containing the first intelligence of the passing of the Act of Parliament for blockading of the town of Boston; which, if we may judge from the indignation with which it is every where received, will prove the crudest policy that ever disgraced a British Senate, and be the very means to perfect that union in America which it was intended to destroy, and finally restore the excellent constitution even of the mother country itself.
