The remainder of these Minute Books are kept at the Town Clerk's office in a separate building, and time did not allow of my inspecting them, but I ascertained that a volume which was missing, which Mr. Stuart Moore reported, has recently been recovered (1909), and is now marked Book 30A. Other volumes still missing are from Sept. 12, 1698, where No. 18 ends, and Aug. 14, 1722, where No. 19 begins. Also between 1831 and Dec. 31, 1835.
