Mr.Lillie bumps into Mr. Edes on king street. (two days after the massacre)
(looked up) oh it's you
Sorry sir (looking down)
You are the last person I want to see right now! You should be afraid to walk these streets after what you and your people did
That fight was a rough one!
Rough!! That wasn’t rough! That was catastrophic! Those loyalists killed 5 innocent colonists! All we did were throw a couple of snowballs and held sticks for protection!
Don’t tell me you think this is our fault! This would never have happened if it weren’t for you patriots disrespecting us.
How is us being disrespectful, by showing our opinions, and you killing innocent people fair gestures? One snowball was thrown by us patriots, and bam you filthy loyalists starting shooting your guns at innocent people. We were doing what was right the whole time, and just protecting ourselves.
None of the patriots are innocent including yourself! The boycotts, the protests, and now this. Those boycotts and protests went way to far, which lead to this mess, those five men died because of your own mistakes. Why don’t you just support the king already?
Theophilus Lillie, (raised his voice) those five men did not die. They were murdered by the loyalists, unnecessarily firing their guns.
(Choked up) This conversation will continue no further! Good day Mr.Edes.
