The 1830s were the heyday of the formation of anti-slavery societies. Associations were established at the town, county and state levels. This article reports on a meeting held in Amherst, Massachusetts, on September 8, 1835, calling for an Anti-Slavery Convention for Hampshire, Franklin and Hampden counties to be held in Northampton on January 13, 1836. It asks that all people who are in favor of emancipation attend this convention. The Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 26, 1827 to June 27, 1837. It changed its name to the Gazette & Mercury.
