April 8, 1767

1767 April 8 (Wednesday).  Town Meeting to reconsider the Vote about the place of the Work-House, and to Vote to have it stand near the Stables, before my House.  Upon discerning men there viewing the Ground I went out and Spoke to them and at the Motion of several I went in to the Meeting House and remonstrated against it, and prayed them to set it otherwhere.  They reconsidered their Vote and placed it where it was voted at first.
