Text of this broadside reads, "Citizens of Boston! A free citizen of Massachusetts--free by Massachusetts laws until his liberty is declared to be forfeited by a Massachusetts jury, is now imprisoned in a Massachusetts temple of justice! The compromises, trampled upon by the slave power when in the path of slavery, are to be crammed down the throat of the North. The kidnappers are here. Men of Boston! Sons of Otis, and Hancock, and the "brace of Adamses!" See to it that Massachusetts laws are not outraged with your consent! See to it that no free citizen of Massachusetts is dragged into slavey, without trial by jury! '76."
