The 25th of January 1774, the aggrieved people entered his house unarmed. He injured several people with his sword: but the Bostonians, moderate even in their vengeance, seized him, carried him out the window and placed him in a cart; next he was stripped, tarred, feathered, brought to the town square, beaten with a rod, and forced to thank them for not killing him; then he was brought back to his house without further injury.
