December 25, 1773

1773 December 25 (Saturday).  I desire to give most hearty praise and Thanks to God for the Birth of Jesus Christ, the Great and only Saviour, though I don’t know that this was the Day: nor do we publickly Solemnize it as Such.  Wrote to Mr. Cornelius Waters of Dartmouth College, in Answer to his concerning Cagnawaga and the Rices.  Committ it to the Care of Mr. Ebenezer Waters of Sutton.
