December 11, 1749

1749 December 11 (Monday).  P.M. according to the Request brought me by Lieutenant Tainter last Saturday I rode over to Esq. Bakers and Met the Committee of the Precinct, viz. Esq. Baker, Lieutenant Tainter, Lieutenant Thomas Forbush, Messrs. James Bowman and Phinehas Hardy.  The Business was, They wanted to know whether I expected or desir’d the Precinct to do any Thing for me about my Remove from my present Dwelling to the New Meeting House, which I certify’d them I depended upon their assistance.  Was at Merchant Rice’s and had some Talk there with Lieutenant Nathan Brigham of Southborough about the Land round the Meeting House and he seems willing to grant it.
