This letter, published in the Hampshire Gazette, is a response to a letter signed by Thomas Grover that was published on December 27, 1786. The author quite obviously is on the side of the government. K. N. views Grover and his friends as insurgents, and makes a play on words saying that instead of "defense," Grover actually meant "defiance." William Butler began publication of the Hampshire Gazette on September 6, 1786, in Northampton, Massachusetts, 18 days after the Regulators prevented the Court of Common Pleas from convening there. The newspaper often urged support of the government and was generally against the activities of the Regulators. The paper came out on Wednesdays and consisted primarily of articles reprinted from other newspapers.
