I have a Gmail account with some email in a label called "oldMailers".
I want to copy that entire label and the mail in it to another Gmail account that I have.
Please tell me how to do this?

Since you can't "share" email between Gmail accounts (see: https://support.google.com/a/answer/33330?hl=en ), one approach to accomplish what you need is to setup POP or SMTP access with the legacy account.
OPTION A- copy mail via a mail client such as Outlook
Setup your mail client to access both Gmail accounts. If using MS Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird [https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/], you should see to sets of "inboxes" and subfolders- one per account.
Once you've downloaded the full version of each message in the legacy account's "oldMailers" folder, you can drag & drop/copy to the desired folder in the new Gmail account.
OPTION B- copy mail via Gmail account (this theoretically should work, but you may risk confusion from having multiple labels with the same name in both accounts)
Once you've configured POP access/import of the legacy Gmail account, you should see the "oldMailers" label/folder and can select all, apply a label/file away in a folder unique to your new Gmail account.
