Description

Meeting minutes begin with the names of members elected for the Committee in May of 1747, and go on to document the dates of meetings, members present, and business conducted. Topics covered include financial matters such as account balances, collections, payments to those employed by the church, and pew rents; charity, including a very active widows' fund; and repairs and upgrades such as new roof shingles and a new velvet cover for the pulpit. The minutes also contain discussion of the need for a second church building to accommodate a growing congregation, and the eventual split with Third Presbyterian ("the Pine Street church.")
