A few days later, an overview of a non-import agreement, which made the front page of the May 4 edition of Richard Drapers Massachusetts Gazette. He reminded readers that the Merchants and Traders in the Town of BOSTON had an appointment last August and had “concluded an agreement not to send or import property from the United Kingdom … January 1769 until January 1770. In addition, “traders and traders in other cities in this province and New York” had developed similar agreements. Draper printed the original article of the deal reached by the merchants last August and concluded with the fifth article. It says, “That from time to time, after January 1, 1769, we will not introduce tea, paper, glass or paint colours into this province until the law imposing tariffs on these items is repealed.” Nearly two months had passed when Curtenius` announcement appeared in the New York Journal on October 20, but it had first been published three weeks earlier in the September 29 edition. Given the time it takes ships to transfer orders across the Atlantic and return them with their cargoes, all items imported at the end of September “in the last ships in Europe” must have been ordered before the New York merchants have adopted their non-import agreement. The Boston non-import agreement of 1768 and the subsequent removal of townshend Revenue Act taxes on all raw materials except tea was an important cause that led to December 16, 1773 at the Boston Tea Party. With the passage of the Tea Act in May 1773, the tea tax was still in effect under the Townshend Revenue Act. The tea tax, which was not lifted, like other taxes under the Townshend Revenue Act repealed in 1767, was one of the main reasons why the Tea Act angered and mobilized settlers to protest and boycott tea deliveries from the British East India Company. If the tea tax had been abolished in 1770 along with all other taxes, the Boston Tea Party would probably never have taken place and the patriots would have expressed their protest in another form. One of the resolutions adopted by Congress was the Declaration of Colonial Rights.

In this document, the settlers listed the rights to which they were denied as An Englishman. Commander John Sullivan, delegate from New Hampshire, designed the resolution. Colonial delegates met in the fall of 1774 in Philadelphia to decide how to resolve their divisions against the British government. This meeting of colonial representatives – the first continental congress – adopted a series of resolutions aimed at satisfying their grievances. In addition to the English, American settlers were also an audience for the Boston Agreement. On the one hand, there were traders, traders, craftsmen and traders who would benefit from the economic benefits of a successful boycott. On the other hand, in the political spheres, it could serve as an example of triumphant opposition to the British. To achieve such a victory, it was crucial that the boycott was accompanied by as many traders and traders as possible, not only in Boston, but in all the colonies of the New World.

But Williams added a curious preamble with his advertisement: “Finally imported from London, but finally from New York, and before the merchants` resolution for non-importation.” Like others who have promoted their products in public print, Williams has noticed the origins of her textiles.
