September 27, 1773

1773 September 27 (Monday).  John is poorly and can’t go to Oxford as expected.  Mr. Lorings Diary.  A Town Meeting, to See if the Town would not consent to Some Alterations to be made in the Situation of the Pews proposed to be built before the foreseats below, and to take away the great Pew that is next to the Pulpit before, and above the Deacons Seat.  Also to dispose of Pew-places, at the Wall, in the Galleries.  The former of these things the Town did nothing of: the latter was accomplished.  They were sold at Capt. Woods at Night.  Henry Barns Esq. here.
