Here formerly stood Griffin's Wharf, at which lay moored on Dec. 6, 1773, three British ships with cargoes of tea. To defeat King, George's trivial but tyrannical tax of three pence a pound, about ninety citizens of Boston disguised as Indians, boarded the ships, threw the cargoes, three hundred and forty-two chest in all, into the sea, and made the world ring with the patriotic exploit of the Boston Tea Party. “No! Ne'er was mingled such a draught In Palace, Hall or Arbor, As Freemen brewed and Tyrants quaffed, That Night in Boston Harbor.”
