1770 June 11 (Monday). P.M. Squire Whipple here. By him I committ Mrs. Eunice Cooks petition for a Contribution, to the Selectmen for their Advice, Deacon Bond being one of them. He returns it to me with their Advice that it be read to the Congregation and left to their Consideration for a Fortnight; that if any Objection arises against it, it may be made in that Time. Hear that the Rev. Mr. Ezekiel Dodge of Abington dyed last Tuesday Night. The Lord Sanctifie this sorrowfull Dispensation!
