December 4, 1769

1769 December 4 (Monday).  This Day the Town Met by Adjournment on the Affair of my supplys.  I sent nothing to them but they voted £500 Old Tenor and my Wood.  They sent also Deacon Wood and Mr. Belknap to inform me of it.  I understand that they have voted 6£ or 45£ Old Tenor.  Alexander came from Framingham.  Informs me that he yesterday owned the Covenant and his Child was baptized Betty.  He goes back to Sturbridge.  Earnestly pray he may have Grace to keep the Solemn Covenant and walk according to the Gospel he makes profession of.
