Whereas numbers of persons, from their unhappy situation in the Town of Boston, are removing with their effects:

It is recommended to the good people of this Province, that they would rent their Houses, and assist such persons with Teams for their removal, Provisions for their support, and all other necessaries, upon as easy and cheap terms as they can possibly afford; and that all Goods and Merchandise be sold in like manner, agreeable to the spirit of the Continental Association. By order of the Provincial Congress:

JOHN HANCOCK, President.
