Excerpt from Select Letters on the Trade and Government of America: And the Principles of Law and Polity, Applied to the American Colonies

The letters which are now submitted to the public, were written between the years 1763 and 1768 by Governor Bernard, who was at that time governor of Massachusets Bay, and had a principal part in the proceedings which gave occasion for them. A little before that time an act of parliament was passed for raising money in America by a stamp duty, and bringing it into the Exchequer of England; without due consideration being had of the Practicability of such scheme, or of the Propriety of it if it was practicable. At this time America was just recovering herself from a war, in which she had borne a principal and burdensome part; and therefore was a very unfit subject for a present Taxation.

But what should have prevented a Taxation at that time was, that her governing powers were not fitted or able to carry into execution that, or any ordinance of Parliament that, was like to be disputed.
