Mr. Editor:
I have in my possession a copy of The Massachusetts Manuel, (Boston, June 1814,) by William Burdick, which contains the records of some marriages solemnized at Norridgewock by the Reverend Josiah Peet, Congregational minister of that town. The entries are made on a blank leaf near the beginning ot the manuel and on a fly-leaf at the end. The book is interleaved, and has various manuscript notes as to places where Mr. Peet preached. It has lost its binding and been otherwise abused, and was found among some old paper junk. The record of these marriages is worth saving, and for that reason I send the following copy to the MAINE HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL RECORDER for permanent preservation.
