924. BOSTON PORT BILL, Denounced.—

All such assumptions of unlawful power
[as the Boston Port act] are dangerous to the
right to the British empire in general, and
should be considered as its common cause;
and we will ever be ready to join with our
fellow-subjects in every part of the same, in
executing all those rightful powers which
God has given us, for the reestablishment
and guaranteeing * * * their constitutional
rights, when, where, and by whomsoever invaded.
Resolution of Albemarle County. Ford ed., i, 419.
(July 26, 1774)
