"June y 2, 1751 - being Lords day & after public worship was ended, a number of the brethren of the church offered the following memorial and petition to the church.
May y 29, 1751 Westerly & Charlestown
To ye Rev Pastor & brethren of ye Rev Sir & dear brethren,
We whose names are hereunto affixed having entered into solemn covenant bonds with you to watch over each other & by no means to suffer sin upon one another, have had a great sense of ye vows of God upon us, & seeing many of our brethren & some of ye principal of ye flock, neglecting of ye work of God, & (as we apprehend) unmindful of their covenant vows, have from a sincere regard to ye glory of God & the edification of His saints, dealt faithfully with them from time to time. But we have been misunderstood & misrepresented by them all along to our inexpressible grief & discouragement, & there is such darkness between us as gives no hopes of its being ever otherwise, which makes our covenant bonds intolerable. And we not daring to make a schism in ye body of Christ, but desiring to keep ye faith & order of ye gospel, do earnestly desire a peaceable & regular dismission from our Special covenant relation to you, & to be recommended to ye grace of God & to the communion of ye Churches of Christ in Special ordinances, wherever God in His Providence shall call us, or cast our lot, or to be a distinct church, if the Lord should open a door for it.
Dec. Ezekiel Gavitt, Christopher Sugar, Amie Gavitt, Ruth Sugar, Anna York, Hopestill York, Stanton York, Abigail Parke, Jemima York, Lois Ross, Hannah Stanton York"
