Delegates from abolitionist sector nominate Hubbard for Congressman article in Greenfield Gazette and Mercury newspaper

This article from the Greenfield, Massachusetts, "Gazette and Mercury" advises the Whig party to remain undivided during the 1840 election. There was an effort by some of the abolitionists in the Whig party in Hampden County and other towns to split the party and run an abolitionist candidate. The writer of this article feels that abolition would be a good thing, but that it could not succeed at this time and having more than one candidate would only serve to take votes away from the party and help re-elect Martin Van Buren.
