Comments: This volume contains important opinions and debates on the Boston Tea Party and Parliament's legislative response: The Coercive Acts. Pages 77-116 are on the reaction to the Boston Tea Party and the first Coercive Act which was the Boston Port Bill. This act closed the port of Boston to all imports and exports. Bostonians had less essential imported goods This increased anti-Parliament sentiment and furthered the idea of American Independence from Great Britain. Pages 116-251 are the debates on the second Coercive Act which was the Massachusetts Government Act. This act concentrated more executive authority with the Crown and the Royal Governor of Massachusetts. Members of the provincial council and many legal officials, including the attorney general, were no longer chosen by Massachusetts officials.

Thanks for the note. I'm actually in NY for a few days and was hoping to get there but have to head back tomorrow. I've been stopping by the Argosy for over 60 years starting when my mother would take me there after shopping at Bloomingdale's and lunch at a long gone restaurant on the east side of Lexington between 58th and 59th that was torn down to make way for Alexander's department store; that is gone too, of course. - Peter H.
