Alexandria Library, Special Collections Document of the Month

This month's document is an invitation to the "first hop of the season" in 1867. Now stored flat, the invitation was originally folded in half and then folded into thirds. The inside of the document is blank. There is a stamp but no address on the back, making it unclear how the invitation was delivered. Many of the people listed as managers on the invitation came from prominent Alexandria families of the time.
