Mein's name appeared on a list of merchants who violated the trade agreement printed by a group of merchants. In response Mein published another letter accusing the Merchants' Committee of using the nonimportation agreement to lock out other merchants from trade, while they profited from the goods. The argument precipitated the ransacking of Mein's office, men who resembed him were beaten in the streets, and he was hanged in effigy.

Results of Incident: Mein left the colonies with 2000 pounds of debt and spent one year in debtor's prison in London. He continued writing for London newspapers against the patriot movement. In 1770, the Boston Chronicle closed.
