Larry's Notes: The original is severely water damaged and much is unreadable. By comparing two or more of these, I have guessed as to what some of the missing information is. On this particular one, by comparing Mary's which is dated 12 November 1792 and the 17th year of Independence, I can safely assume that this is 21 June 1792 to make it the 16th year of Independence. 4 July 1792, would have started the 17th year.
