NotesSource note: From New York 170 years ago : with a view, and explanatory notes. By Joseph W. Moulton. New York, W. G. Boggs, printer, 1843.Content: "This view was copied from a manuscript copy of one which was originally published in Holland, and which copy was made in 1769, by Du Simitier, a French gentleman of antiquarian research, taste, and learning, who resided and died in Philadelphia. His manuscripts were preserved in the Loganian branch of the library of that city; and by the liberality of the officers of that institution, the writer was permitted to transcribe freely, such documents, as he deemed useful, for the illustration of the History of New York. Satisfied of its authority, as a correct delineation immediately prior to the conquest in July, 1673, upon various grounds in the recapitulation of which it is not necessary to occupy the readers attention, the writer caused this interesting relic to be engraved, and has added the following notes in explanation of edifices, streets, &c. appended to the original map."--from source text.Content: Cf image ID 54735.
