For instance, William Cooper, secretary of the Boston town meeting, wrote to a fellow Bostonian in England in 1768: “You know what has been called an illicit trade has been wink’d at by all former Administrations, it being eventually more profitable to Britain than the Colonies. ” He went on to complain that, “[T]hese Channels are now dryed up . . ”20 London remained undeterred.

The situation was ready-made for abuse and manipulation. Little oversight and accountability and the potential for high rewards from seizures made for an explosive mix. Officers typically took a sizable cut of the prize money on every seizure made—making overzealous enforcement more tempting.
