[MANUSCRIPT NOTE INVITING MR. JOHN SMITH TO A MEETING OF THE CLINTONIAN COMMITTEE]
by [New York]
[New York, 1796. p. on a folded sheet, docketed on verso. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling. Very good. A brief manuscript note inviting one John Smith, living at Mr. Woodhull's, to a meeting of the Clintonian Committee. The Clintonians were a faction of the Republican party in the Federal period, initially named such for being led by New York Governor George Clinton, though in later years the label applied to his nephew, De Witt Clinton. It is likely this note is from the Federal period, and the 1796 election. It reads: "The Clintonian Committee present their compliments to Mr. John Smith and request the honor of his Company at dinner this day at Francis's Tavern, Great Dock Street, at three o'clock. Friday morning." (Inventory #: WRCAM51555)
