Colonists said they would pay the taxes if they were given a representative voice in Parliament.
What specific part of the Townshend Act terrified the colonists? Why was this particularly concerning? Writ of assistance. This document gave British official the right to search a ships cargo without a reason, and they feared it would only be a matter of time until this applied to their homes and personal property as well.
