My name is Sam Adams and I am the founder of the Committee of Correspondence The purpose of the Committee is to keep in touch with radicals elsewhere Another purpose is to keep all colonists informed of British rule I think I speak for every colonist when I say Im tired of being oppressed by Britain Britain has usurped power over us We have no autonomy I believe that the Proclamation of 1763 was an unfair law This unjust law prohibits us from sett ling west of the Appalachians Only licensed fur traders can enter the Ohio Region This is an unfair law We had to go through the French-Indian war and many colonists died fighting for thr land that is being taken away from us I disagree with the Navigation Acts also For some colonists who dont know the Navigation Acts stated that all goods passing between England and the colonies must be carried in ships that had been built in Britain or in the colonies The owners of these ships must be American or British The captain and crew must also be British or American I question whether the Sugar and Stamp Act were necessary The Sugar Act was a law passed in 1764 whhich taxed our imports or sugar coffee and wine The Stamp Act wasa law that taxed all printed matter such as stamps paper newspapers playing cardss and magazines Both laws are unfair because Parliament had no right to tax us when we had no say in the election of our members It was taxation without representation There is no doubt that Britain treats us unfairly We are being taxed by Britain without being represented in parliament We should only be taxed by legislative bodies that we have elected ourselves This is taxation without representation The Townshend Acts of 1767 taxed glass lead paper paint and teaMyself and other Sons of Liberty staged boycotts and other protests to these laws
