Boston: Let's Stop and Think
In response to the Massacre
Fellow colonists, I cannot begin to express my sorrows for the events that have transpired here so unfortunately. It is a tragedy. But I advise you, or furthermore, give you warning that, before you pick up your arms, you should think twice.
An event like this has spawned a whisper that wanders among us-- that says revolt. Before we heed this, we must consider the outcome of a revolt. No doubt, it will result in more death, the very thing that we find so unjust, but also when we run out of guns, we will be forced to cede to the enemy and give away our freedom. They are trained soldiers. It will be Hell in America.
