Brethren, and fellow citizens! : You may depend, that those odious miscreants and detestable tools to ministry and governor, the tea consignees, (those traitors to their country, butchers, who have done, and are doing every thing to murder and destroy all that shall stand in the way of their private interest,) are determined to come and reside again in the town of Boston. I therefore give you this early notice, that you may hold yourselves in readiness, on the shortest notice, to give them such a reception, as such vile ingrates deserve.
