Boston December 26th 1774
. . . we have received Accounts of an Attack made by a Number of People in New-Hampshire on His Majesty's Fort William and Mary in Piscataqua Harbour. There has been different Reports concerning this Transaction, but I transmit your Lordship Copys and Extracts of Letters that I have received from Governor [John] Wentworth upon the Subject. A Frigate and Sloop of War are now in that Harbour, and we have received no Accounts of farther Disturbances since they arrived.
