William Butler began publication of the Hampshire Gazette on September 6, 1786, in Northampton, Massachusetts. The mission of the newspaper was to inform the public about the issues pertaining to the ongoing insurrections. Butler hoped that it would help prevent the mob mentality from gaining strength. This article is in praise of George Washington's agricultural ability. It sums up his livestock and amounts of acreage for each crop. The correspondent also feels that Washington aims to benefit his country and mankind. The writer thinks that the new United States of America will become the premier country on earth in less than a century. He mentions that the representation of the Union is complete with the selection of the delegate from New Hampshire.
