RATES & FEES FOR USE OF THE HEARSE BELONGING TO THE QUAKER SOCIETY OF FRIENDS.

[np: @1900]. Broadside, large red and black type faces. Margin-toned, else Very Good.

"Indians shall have their bodies carried for Christian Burial only. The Society's Hearse shall not be let for any Heathen ceremonies." Other, less-interesting rules for use of the Hearse are also listed. The Society of Friends for many years maintained a Mission in Western New York State with the Seneca Nation. This broadside probably came from that Mission.
