Resolved: That the site should be on North West corner of a lot of land now owned by Wm Weaver. It is likewise agreed by Wm Weaver that the said land (namely) one half acre of land ten rods on the road leading to Higgins Mills and eight rods east should be now and here after for the benefit of said Society for the purpose aforesaid.
