Rab warns Johnny that Merchant Lyte is “crooked” and tries to take advantage of the political strife in Boston. Lyte promised to participate in the boycott against the Stamp Act, but then sold English goods in secret so he could make more money. Although Rab suspects the Lytes won’t help Johnny, he lends the younger boy a nice set of clothes so he can look presentable at the dinner.
