Founded at Boston, August 1, 1770. This newspaper was established to support the Whig element in the New England colonies in opposition to the Boston Chronicle, which favored the British Government. It was edited by Isaiah Thomas, and was suspended in six months for a time, but was begun again and removed to Worcester. Contributions were at first made by members of both political parties, but its sympathies were so evidently revolutionary that the royalist writers withdrew. Notable among the contributions concerning political questions were those signed "Centinel," "Leonidas" and "Mucius Scaevola." It is still published daily and weekly.
