Abstract:
Request for a Council from the Minority. Undated, but doubtless dating from late 1750 or early 1751, this petition was sent by Edwards’ adherents in Northampton to the Revs. Thomas Prince and Thomas Foxcroft of Boston, Peter Clark of Salem Village, William Hobby of Reading, and David Hall of Sutton, two of which, Hobby and Hall, had been members of the June 22 Council and had voted against Edwards’ dismission. Here the topics are broached of Edwards being re-settled over the first church in Northampton, or settled over a second church, or even over an "academy" in an unspecified location.
