|Dear 5D4 Students,
Looney and I heard the new writs-of-assistance allowed the customs officers to come in your shop and accuse you of smuggling materials if they knew where to look.
During these times in 1761, officers should not be allowed to come in here and do anything they want, but the new law says they do not have to write where they are going to search in your shop.
While we are up here, in Dorchester, if we try to smuggle something, we really have to watch out.
With this information we have given you, be careful!
