1688. Hutchinson to Lord Hillsborough, 12 March, 1770. He saw in his mind, Andros seized and imprisoned, and the people instituting a new government; he reflected that the citizens of Boston and the country about it were become four times as numerous as in those days, and their spirit full as high. He fancied them insurgent, and himself their captive; and he turned to the Council for advice. It is not such people as formerly pulled down your House, who conduct the present measures; said Tyler, but they are people of the best characters among us, men of estates, and men of religion.

The Mayor advised the mother of Tyler to take her child home, lock him up, and give him a good whipping. The mother repTyler to take her child home, lock him up, and give him a good whipping. The mother replied that it was not for a lack of chastisement that her boy formed bad associations; and that if he was brought up again, she would not endeavor to prevent his incarceration. Callahan was held with a view to a further investigation of the matter.
