Letter to Israel Williams

William Williams, of Dalton, feels his father may have heard from men who allied themselves with Daniel Shays that he supported them. He states that he has been opposed to resisters and their measures. Daniel Shays led a tax rebellion of about 2,000 farmers in western Massachusetts from 1786 to January 25, 1787. This letter is dated January 15, ten days before the Springfield Arsenal was successfully defended by General Lincoln and 1,200 local militiamen.
