Rev. Frederick Dibblee's Diary - references to George

Rev. Frederick Dibblee kept a diary. Below are the references in the diary to George Jarvis Dibblee son of Frederick. George was born in 1800, so I have given his approximate age. This may not be all the references to George. Rev. Frederick Dibblee talked a lot about 'the boys', which presumably may have included George. Several of Rev. Frederick Dibblee's friends were also called george. Normally they were referred to with surnames as well, but some of the 'George' references below may be to them.
