Whereas Thomas Day hath made Ten rod of fence between his homelot & the Towns land in ye old Training field or the Burying place, & demand pay of the Town for that worke (viz: 25 shillings) it was denyed that the Town should satisfy the same, it belonging to the proprietors of the homelots as they lye in a generall field.

There haveing passed some undue & contradicting votes referring to the Land of Reverend Teacher Mr. Pelatiah Glover now possesses, for wch we have cause to be humble before the Lord, we haveing first stated it to the ministry & afterward given it to our Reverend Teacher as his own property, &

p.156

yet afterward again assumed it to the ministry thinking it our duty so to doe, eyeing our first Sequestration thereof: upon which our General Court hath declared it our Duty to give our Reverend Teacher a due compensation to the full value thereof. Considering the promises & our entanglement thereby, & seeing our Reverend Teacher is desirous to enjoy this Gift to him, we doe therefore judge it meet & cheerfully conclude that the forty acres more or lesse of Town Land at Chickuppi, together wth the 6 acres & 1/2 of Town Medow, as alsoe about two acres & halfe by Mr. Denton's (wch we will - God willing - purchase) be all set apart & appropriated for the ministry, if we may do so & not sin against God & that the Honored Generall Court be petitioned to allow of this exchange, stating this for the ministry in lieu of the former, whereby our Reverend Teacher may enjoy that land given him, the ratification & confirmation whereof, being allowed by & obtained from the General Court we hope may satisfy, & compose all difficulties about it, it being understood only of one to be stated for ye ministry, the Later takeing place, the other to be void & for the effecting, & obtaining the honored General Court ratification hereof it was concluded Jno Holyoke should draw up a petition to the next Generall Court accordingly.

It was also further concluded that the Worshipful Major Pynchon, Esq., should give the Selectmen in behalfe of the Town a Deed of Sale of that Two acres & halfe by Mr. Dentons house, & that also the Selectmen should give the Worshipful a bill of sixty five pounds to be paid him by the Towne.

The votes for this Exchange was 27 & the dissenters were 23: who though they dissented from confirming the Townes gift to our Reverend Teacher, yet they consented to give him a full compensation for the land first set apart for the ministry.
