Identify the major source of colonial information. -… 11. Describe the Townshend Revenue Acts of 1767 and what became of them. -Townshend’s scheme turned out to be a grab bag of duties on American imports of paper, glass, paint, lead and tea, which collectively were known as the Townshend Revenue Acts (1767) He hoped to generate sufficient funds to pay the salaries of royal governors and other imperial officers, thus freeing them from dependence on the colonial assemblies. Colonist showed no more willingness to pay for Townshend’s Acts then they did to pay for the Stamp Act. On February 11, 1768, the Massachusetts House of Representatives drafted a circular letter, a provocative appeal which sent directly to the other colonial assemblies to thwart the Townshend Acts. Hillsborough ordered the Massachusetts representatives to rescind their “seditious paper.” After considering Hillsborough’s demand the legislators voted 92 to 17 to defy him. 12.
