Titcomb writes Knox, "I hereby inform you the Commissioners have made their Reports into the Secretary's office, on one hundred and fifty one lots, referred to them by you and the settlers on the Waldo Patent which the Secretary will proceed to make out the Copies of, after the present Session of the Gen. Court is over." Titcomb wished to see Knox at "Court this Session, as I find you are chosen a Representative for Thomaston."
