Document consisting of an ordered list of 163 invitees. Manuscript #DA10431, in the John N. Bleecker Papers, at the NYSL. This document has been transformed and included here for the insights it provides on residency and interactions. For example, for the listing here, we learned that Samuel Hill was the son-in-law of Thomas Barry.

Transformed by SB from a photocopy of an original document in the State Library collection.
