May 10, 1787
PENNSYLVANIA PACKET & DAILY ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, May 10, 1787 Page 3 has content on the Shays' Rebellion with: "I am exceeding sorry to hear of the confused state you are involved in at present in Mass. and, for my part, much fear the consequences. I saw your hero, Shays, in Canada, with a number of his attendants. I hope...he and they will meet the just rewards of their demerit. I think they are treated with suitable contempt in Canada...". Then another report mentions: "...accounts from the counties of Hampshire & Berkshire...there is yet remaining a number of sneaking rebels whose chief glory consists in assassinating, or destroying their neighbours property, themselves concealed behind the fable veil of insurrection..." and more (see).
