Letter from Boston, received in New-York


Boston, July 21,1774. The firmness and unanimity of the people to defend their invaluable rights, notwithstanding the restlessness of a little selfish faction, does this Province honour. At a meeting of sixty gentlemen, Deputies of the several towns in the County of Berkshire, a number of judicious, spirited Resolves were passed, and a non-consumption agreement agreed upon to encourage our own manufactures, and a subscription for the Boston sufferers, by the Port Act. The accounts from Connecticut are most encouraging, and the firmness, activity, and generosity of the other Colonies, is astonishing to the enemies of American freedom. Courage, Americans; and with the help of God, the slavery intended for us may be warded off, and our tranquillity reestablished.
