This Morning brought us News from S. Carolina of the Destruction of the Tea there,
and from England of a Duel between Mr. Temple and Mr. Whately, and Mr. Franklins explicit
Declaration, that he alone sent the Governors Letters to Boston and that both Temple
and Whately were ignorant and innocent of it1
