"Whately Rummery" article from Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald newspaper

The Temperance Movement began in the early 1800s and by 1833 there were 6,000 local societies in the United States. This article, reprinted from the Hampshire Gazette, hopes that the Franklin County Commissioners will refuse to give a license to a rum distillery in Whately, Massachusetts. The writer feels that it is a curse to the entire area, and that when previously in operation, supplied the "drunkards" in Northampton. 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.
