Notes
Content: Printed on border: "As an immediate result of Nicolls' attendance upon the Convention, a race-course was established at Hempstead. The ground selected was sixteen miles long and four wide. It was covered with fine grass, unmarred by stick or stone. Nicolls directed that a plate should be run for every year, to improve the provincial Dutch, or Flemish, breed of horses" "Page 229."
