1765 GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE STAMP ACT November NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION
Upon the 5th of October the ships arrived at Philadelphia, with the stamps on board, for Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, when several thousand citizens assembled in order to consider ways and means for preventing the stamp act from taking place in that province, and at last came to a resolution to request the distributor to resign his office; which after some demur he in part did, assuring his countrymen that no act of his, or his deputies, should enforce the execution of the stamp act in the provinces for which he was comissioned, before the same should be generally put in force in the neighboring colonies....
