Minnie E Duryea
Bay Ridge.

June 11th 1879.

What’s interesting to note is that her last name is spelled “Duryea” on this title page, but in subsequent pages shows up as “Duryee.” In fact, there are several other signatures that appear to be family members – and all of them sign their name “Duryee.”

Later signatures and mentions of location suggest New York, and L.I. probably stands for Long Island.

No matter how often I look at it, I’m in awe of the fact that this thing is 132 years old.
