May 1, 1780

1780 May 1 (Monday).  The Town met to read the Address of the Convention, with the Draught they had made of a Form of Government for this State.  I understood that they read it over, and after some debating upon it, they adjourned to this day three weeks.  May God the Fountain of Wisdom, grant them Knowledge and understanding.  Wrote a long letter to my son Ebenezer at Morris Town, New Jersey to be ready for Col. Baldwin to carry.  Billy and Lydia here yet.
