This letter informs John Williams that his family is well. James Upham says that complaints are increasing and there is talk of a town meeting to instruct their representative. The complaints would have been about the state of the economy and lack of money. He also states that property is being sold for about half its value. Upham asks where a deed is so that he may sell a "purl ash works" and that he has been offered 30 pounds for the sale of the Williams store in Deerfield. Williams retained ownership of the store until 1796.
