[New York] Printed by James & John Harper 1820 Very good 
Broadsheet (approximately 8" x 13"). Recto contains a printed extract of the minutes from the 1820 Yearly Meeting of Women Friends of New York. The name "Abigail Evernghim, Clerk. " is lso printed at the bottom. The verso reads: "MINUTES of the Yearly Meeting. 1820." along with the name and address of the printer. In early 19th century America, the Society of Friends or Quakers dealt with organizational and other church issues in Quarterly and Yearly meetings. Each Society would hold separate meetings for men and women, and most actions required the agreement of both in order to become effective. In 1820, the women Quakers of New York wrestled with the "subject of company keeping and joining in marriage with those not of our Society. " It appears that the topic was so prominent and devisive that minutes relating to this issue were published separately in a broadsheet. The conclusions reached by the Meeting were decidedly undogmatic. Young people were urged to "listen to the tender advice and counsel of their concerned parents and friends," and mothers were warned against any "conniving in the remotest degree at their daughters forming connexions out of the Society. " Mothers were also warned against being "influenced by improper motives" which could "bias their judgment. " This appears to be a reference against encouraging marriages out of financial considerations. The broadside also urges both "mothers and daughters to do away [with] that unbecoming practice of sitting up after the usual hours for families to retire to rest. . . " Overall, this provides a revealing glimpse into the practices of courtship and marriage among the Quakers of New York. It is also uncommon. Worldcat locates only one copy of this broadside in U. S. libraries. Crease marks from folding and light toning with age but overall a very good copy.
