This list of grievances for which the rebels sought redress is in the form of a poem or song. They include complaints about the legislature being in Boston, and the amounts of taxes and the general lack of money. The "groat" mentioned in the second stanza is a British coin that was worth 4 pence.
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.
