November 8, 1780

1780 November 8 (Wednesday).  The adjournment of the Town Meeting.  By Advice I sent a written Message that if they would grant me the Same Allowance of Depreciation which I was required by every one to pay for every Article, I would submit myself to be taxed.  Thereupon the Town chose a Committee to treat with me, viz. Capt. Maynard, Capt. Morse and Capt. Fisher.
