We the Subscribers having been Chose a Committee by the Inhabitants of the Town of Plastow in his Majestys Province of New Hampshire and the Inhabitants of the north Parish in Haverhill in the Province of the Massachusetts Bay who Congregate with the Said Inhabitants of Plastow to State the Place where their meeting House Shall Stand for the Future Have attended that Service, by Viewing the Several parts of Said Town and Parish agreeable to the Desire of the Inhabitants of both, and heard the Respective Parties with Respect to the Premises; and after Serious Consideration of the affair with a train of Circumstances attending the Same too long to enumerate, Do Report that our opinion is that the most Suitable Place for the meeting House to Stand at present, is where their meeting House now Stands being fully of the mind, That the Starting or Determining any other Place for that purpose, will be attended with worse Consequences to Said Inhabitants than that we have Reported Plastow Marb 20th 1766.
Sundry Persons of Plastow Desire to have the Town Still
Plastow Decem" 30th 1766 To the General Court of the province of New Hampshire
These are to inform your Hon's That whereas there was two petitions Sent to the general Court the twenty sixth of June Last past in order to be considered at the next setting one to have the town Divided the other to anex a part to Hampstead, we the Subscribers Living within the Limits of s petitions, are Desirous that Neither of them may be granted inasmuch as we think that it will very much Damnify the town at present for we Look on ourselves and the inhabitants of this town unable at present to maintain two ministers of the Gospel but inasmuch as there is a considerable Quantity of unsettled Land in this part of the town which is chiefly own'd by men belonging to other towns we are in hopes that in a few years we may be able and in the mean time we are willing that those that have petitioned to be anexed to Hampstead should attend the Publick worship of God and have Liberty to pay their minister Rate there for the term of Eight or ten years till we are
able to be two parishes and credibly to maintain two ministers for these Reasons we Desire that things may Continue as they are at present and in granting this our Request you will greatly oblige us and we think greatly benefit this town and as bound in Duty shall ever pray. Israel Webster
