1780 November 14 (Tuesday). The Town meet by adjournment. The Committee carry my Answer (as above) to them. After meeting, two of the Committee come (Captains Maynard and Morse) and acquaint me that the Town had granted me for this year the sum of £4000, which though it was 1500 short of my just due, I accepted on consideration of their Distresses: and thanked them (The Committee) for their Pains in the Affair. Capt. Fisher came in when the rest were going away: but he stayed not.
