25. Went to the Quaker meeting in the Forenoon & St. Peters in the Afternoon. Dind at my lodgings.

quaker meeting: It cannot be determined which Quaker meetinghouse GW attended. According to Toner, it was probably the meetinghouse at Second and High streets (Toner Transcripts, DLC).

St. Peter’s, an Anglican church located at Third and Pine streets, was completed in 1761. From 1762 to 1775 both St. Peter’s and Christ churches, called the United Churches, were under the rectorship of Rev. Richard Peters.
