This Day in Newburyport

Newburyport Daily News

---- — On this day in 1797, a committee was appointed to look after disorderly boys and men on the street or in other public places. The town voted to return to the old method of providing watchmen by selection from the able-bodied inhabitants of the town, in rotation. No one was to be excused.
