1782 August 9 (Friday). Mrs. Persis Adams was here (by virtue of a Notification sent her of her Husbands desiring a Dismission). She leaves an address to the Pastor of the Church, to be read when Adams’s Request is read. N.B. She takes with her the Papers of Evidences. At Eve Mr. Eli Whitney came and paid me his Rates; which amounted to £1.10.8.
