Three years after the event, Davenport, on his last nerve, appealed to officials at a town meeting, who voted that he should receive six pounds and six shillings compensation (Town Records Vol. 1 125). While the Wolfe would see many more nights of high spirits and even higher bar tabs, like the Independent Military Society’s 45 toast finish in 1774 (Essex Journal 21 Town records), there will never be another night like the Stamp Act riot!
