Hutchinson, Thomas, 1711-1780.
Copy of letters sent to Great-Britain, by His Excellency Thomas Hutchinson, the Honorable Andrew Oliver, and several other persons, born and educated among us. Which original letters have been returned to America, and laid before the Honourable House of Representatives of this province. In which (notwithstanding His Excellency's declaration to the House, that the tendency and design of them was not to subvert the Constitution, but rather to preserve it entire) the judicious reader will discover the fatal source of the confusion and bloodshed in which this province especially has been involved, and which threatned [sic] total destruction to the liberties of all America.
