Ok, so in the 1980s I was doing renovation work on the Capt. Gardner house in Nantucket. Built in 1766 and partially destroyed in a 1984(?) fire, it’s second. So I’m pulling up floor boards in the front of the house and under the seams between the boards is newspaper strips from 1766. Not only that but whoever cut them in strips made sure each strip was the exact width of a print column. So I read the strips. Many were of odd, local things like what ships were arriving, when, what the current ships holds were, etc. but one column stuck out. It was a letter to the editor from, I think, a reverend regarding the 1765 Stamp Act. Well, I tell you my eyes were just about burning by the end of the editorial. Without any use of profanity the author put out the most profane, damning article I have ever read, all directed against the English government. Let’s just say in 1766 some colonials were SERIOUSLY pissed off at the Crown.
