2. While the 29th of a month fell on a Monday seven times during 1765–68, the editors are inclined to assign this note to Monday, Dec. 29, 1766, because during that winter the merchants and the American agents were meeting often to concert action in an attempt to obtain repeal of the Currency Act of 1764. BF played a leading role in these efforts, as several documents in the next volume will show.
