Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe (1801-1876) was appointed Director of the Medical Department of the Greek fleet in 1826, during the Greek Revolution. Greek independence from the Turks was declared in 1830. This open letter to the Ladies Greek Committee of the United States is a thank you for all the clothing that was donated to the people of Greece. He says that Greece owes the Christian world a dept of gratitude for the help it received during the struggle. The revolution happened at a time when there was a religious revival in America, and many missionary and relief organizations were formed as a result. 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.
