In this letter, John Worthington asks John Williams to assist him in removing his name from a petition which he finds contains sentiments he does not agree with. The petition to which John Worthington's name was attached was a result of Shays' Rebellion and seems to contain the sentiments of the followers of Shays. <BR>John Worthington was a candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in 1786 and served as a colonel in the French wars. John Williams held many offices in the town of Deerfield, among them Justice of the Peace, Register of Deeds, as well as acting as town storekeeper.
