advocates for the repeal tampaft urge two That the Britifh Parliament have ao right to lay taxes in becaufe America is oiof reprefented here and that if they this tax is a very inexpedient As to the denial of the it is worth two or three lines of only to expofe the folly ef The Americans acknowledge that the Britifh Legiflature have a right to make laws for them in all affairs of the police and that they ought to fubmit to all thofe laws but they do not nor pretewd to offer a upon what law or authority they found the following that the Britifh Parliament can make hws which may take awuy their lives and but cannot laytven the fmalleft tax upon Some of their friends on this fide the water carry their rcfentment Still fur ther they admit the denial of tight in the manner ftated by the and make this fub divifion Parliament has a clear and undoubted right to lay fome kinds of tates upon the But not all kinds for it may make any regu lations or lay any duties upon their trade but cannot lay any internal taxes on the inhabitants beciufe they are not reprefented in the Britifh Par To which I will juSt that if the faculty of representation is what only gives the power for one kind of it muft allo for the Either both require or neither un lefs it can be which I belive it hardly that the right of impofing one kind of quires a or a different authority than the Now as to the inexpediency it ran applied in one which is the the ftaffipaftj the Americans hadbeen reltrainedin fame very but very branches of com merce and fbme other caufes of difguft had been given them all which put them fa much out ef humour with the mother that I have heard many ot the candid Americans tkat the rage poured againft the ampaft has been more tor tthtr than forany particular grievance contained fimply and exclusively in that I ap peal to every gentleman who conversed with the whether this is not the faft and whether the American gentlemen here do not likewife tllat if the Parliament Should not think proper to repeal it will be fubmirted with very or perhaps no further disturbance and then they that in its confequences it will be more felt by Great Britain than America for it encourage the Americans to ereft all forts of manufactures within in to make uSe of nothing that is This is fuin of their But Ihould it prove which is not very for as the Britifh ma Hufactures are the beft they wjll naturally return to them the Parliament of Great while they preferve the right of as the riches of the Americans lay further But the misfortune of this impolitic difpute is Many of the American gentlemen that if the Parliament Should repeal the and not give up the rigfit of the Americans will Still en tertain the fame jealoufy of the power of Great Bri as if the aft were not repealed and will there fore endeavour to arrive at the independency juft mentioned fo that Great Britain muft either for mally and for ever renounce having any cvtkorty to tax or America will be no longer fubjeft to us and 1 will venture to that if we do re nounce our either exprefuy or Ame rica will be no longer fubjeft to than while Ihe thinks To do to the fentiments of all the American with whom I havecom veried on this interesting I mull fay that there are Some of them wko are fo honeft as to reafon in this manner that repeal of the ftamp aft is necef fary in order to wholly releafe America from any dependence or jealoufy the power of Great Britain for unleSs She can be rendered totally and without the leaft reftraiat of the authority of the mother fhe will ne ver cordially unite with or ever be induced to uie the British fnanuf And a repeal of that aft they ingeniously will fet her at full li berty and the parliament Should retain the idea of yet the circilmftance of the will be a convincing proof that the parliament can not Therefore the repeal will virtually be a full renunciation of the And as to a claim of it fignifies Here they end their reafoning the tenor of which is fufficient autho rity for thatiromthe very moment of fuch heaven the Americans will begin to fet this country at open defiance its autho rity over them will be for ever and whatever may hereafter be the exigencies of or the dirtreSTes of the mother yet we cannot from our colonies Mmmanda fwgle And fmce they have feegun the attempt of making and ufing a few of the articles they have hitherto had from Bri there is no doubt but fome of them will extend this practice as far as they Therefore the trade of Britain to her in fome cer tain being whether this aft be repealed or Let ug then take
