that all America are in actual arms; they have turned
out of office all the King's Judges, Officers, &c. &c.
are all raising forces fast; have fortified the town
of Worster; and have sent General Gage word, that if
all the acts of parliament made against America since
the year 1763, are not immediately repealed, they will
declare war against England...."
