On October 1st, 1764 Jonathan entered into an apprenticeship under George Weathers, with the consent of his mother, until he arrived at the age of 21. "The said George Weathers agrees to instruct and teach him the business of a taylor which the said George Weathers now follows, and to provide him sufficient diet, washing, lodging and apparel during the said term and to give him one years schooling." Judith Bryant signed the agreement by making a mark.
