Journey to the American Founding

September 7 1773

The stories we’re seeing from the last half of 1772 and early 1773 are a mixture of change and continuity. Surrounding the mixture is an intensification of actions and decisions. The new and old twist together in revolving cycles. The pace is not what it once was—it has picked up speed.

Excerpts from: Americanism Redux: September 7, on the journey to the American Founding, 250 years ago today, in 1773

News of the passage of the Tea Act arrives on the pages of the New York Gazette.

Elsewhere, colonists are organizing new townships, arguing over church administration, and digging out of the deadly rubble of a new church that has collapsed. And in a bold promise of transportation innovation, a new stagecoach line has opened between Boston and New York City, pledging to set speed records in making the trip in six days.

But it reports of the Tea Act that promise to travel the fastest, racing toward the unanswered question: now what?

“Letters From A Farmer In Pennsylvania” by John Dickinson, (First Published in 1774) –  Reference #0102

At the time the Tea Act surfaces on the pages of the New York Gazette in late summer 1773, John Dickinson is the best-known and most widely respected writer in the British colonies’ anti-imperial movement. Dickinson’s “Letters” will be one of the first works re-read and reconsidered in helping leaders of the movement hone their opposition to the Tea Act.
