  • The Stamp Act was established Nov. 1765, and with the issue of Nov. 7, 1765, the publishers changed the title from: The Massachusetts gazette and Boston news-letter (Boston, Mass. : 1763), to: The Massachusetts gazette, abandoned the volume numbering; assigned to each issue a zero in place of the usual number, and in defiance of the provisions of the Stamp Act omitted the names of the publishers in the imprint. On May 22, 1766, with the repeal of the Stamp Act, the publishers reinstated the original title, The Massachusetts gazette and Boston news-letter (Boston, Mass. : 1766) and resumed the former numbering with no. 3268.
