Limited Edition of 1022 unnumbered copies, 1936. "The Journal was discovered while making an extensive study of contemporary soources of opinion on the eve of the Revolution. In the opinion of the editor, it is a veritable mine of information for conditions in Boston in 1768-1769, and of the general sources of colonial irritation. To add to its uniqueness and its importance as a moulder of public opinion, the English-speaking world had no other common source of information concerning what was happening in Boston; hence it was dependent upon this account to learn the policies of Government and their effects at the most important trouble center of the time in the entire empire." from the Editorial Introduction.
