September 5, 1774

1774 September 5 (Monday).  Another Town Meeting, upon our public Difficultys — they agree to go to Worcester tomorrow, as it is expected that all other Towns of this County will, to prevent the session of the Court under the new unconstitutional Establishment — and talk of Superseding the necessity of Courts by resolving upon having as few Cases as may be, and by Choosing men from among our Selves that may judge and determine Causes.  Squire Whipple and several others sign the Agreement.  Mr. Webb dines with us.
