In the year 1768, the people of Boston resolved that they would not import any tea, glass, paper, or other commodities commonly brought from Great Britain, until the act imposing duties upon all such articles should be repealed. This poetical appeal to the ladies of the country, to lend a "helping hand " for the furtherance of that resolution, appeared in the Boston News Letter, anonymously.

Young ladies in town, and those that live round,
Let a friend at this season advise you; Since money's so scarce, and times growing worse,
Strange things may soon hap and surprise you.
