November 16, 1774

1774 November 16 (Wednesday).  Though it was rainy yet Breck (who had been to Lancaster to wait on his sister Sophy there to work for John) returned from thence; and tells me that the Council which Mr. Mellen had called, could not get together yesterday, and embody, so soon, but that the Congregation of Chauxitt were together at their Meeting before them and Voted Mr. Mellen’s Dismission.
