from The Boston Post Boy April 22, 1765

It is with the greatest Pleasure we hear of so many of the principal and other inhabitants of this Town refusing to purchase what little Lamb is brought to our Market. We cannot but hope they will continue in this good Resolution, not only as there is such a Plenty of other Provisions, but take into Confidensideration the many Advantages which must naturally arise on having a large Quantity of Wool among us, the Produce of which for one Season only, will be so great as to carry on a considerable Manufacture, at least of necessary Wearin Apparel for ourselves and Children: and we hop(e) in a few Years it will be accounted a Virtue in the Ladies to wear a Garment of their own Spinning.
