Subject:[AaronBurrAssoc] More details on Feb. 7 unveiling party @ Morris-Jumel Mansion
Antonio Burr, Ph.D., advises me that the cocktail reception is from 6 to 9 pm, on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, at the Morris-Jumel Mansion. The party includes the enveiling of both the restored copy of a painting of Aaron Burr (which many of you made contributions to), and the new bust of Aaron, to be placed inside the Mansion. Harry Anderson funded this important work, which was created by artist Leith Adams, on Newport, R.I. Leith attended our Annual Meeting in Charleston, SC, in September.
Tickets for the event cost $20 per person, and may be reserved, ahead of time, in two ways: Call the Mansion, (212) 923-8008 or send an email to Antonio @: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Mansion is located at 65 Jumel Terrace, NYC 10032. It is between West 160th and 162nd Streets, one block east of St. Nicholas Ave, and one block west of Edgecombe Ave. It is in a beautiful area, full of fully-restored brownstone homes.
Antonio suggests you try to book a room at something called "airbnb," which I think runs B & B's in Manhattan.
We hope our members who live in the general area, or who happen to be near NYC then, will attend this important event. We are becoming very close to the Mansion, which in 2015 is celebrating its 250th anniversary. The correct the telephone number of the Mansion; according to their website, it is (212) 923-8008.

Hi, All, (1) After the weather was so great all summer, at least in the D.C. metro area, the fall has been equally beautiful. (2) I am still basking in great memories of our Annual Meeting last month in the historical district of Charleston, SC. Very important bonding and venues, many of which are not open to the public. Thanks, Harry, for all your help. (3) As many of you know, our long-time member, Antonio Burr, Ph.D., of NYC, is now a member of the Board of Trustees of the Morris-Jumel Mansion, on the upper West Side of Manhattan. Harry's good friend, James Kerr, Esq., is Chair. Camilla Huey, fine artist and corsetiere, and her husband, Kurt, have a book store near the Mansion. As I told the attendees at our Charleston Luncheon-Meeting last month, the Mansion is celebrating its 250th Anniversary next year. Antonio has informed me of the following scheduled events of importance to ABA, which many of us will want to attend: - Feb. 5, 2015: the Mansion has acquired a block of tickets for Lin Miranda's "Hamilton" show at the Public Theatre in NYC. There will be a private cocktail party at the Mansion for Lin and the Cast. Tickets may be purchased through the Mansion. - Aaron's birthday is Feb. 6th. - On Sat., Feb. 7th, 2015, the Mansion is planning to coordinate the unveiling of two important ABA works of art: (a) the restored portrait of Aaron which project many of you contributed to. (b) the bust of Aaron Burr by Leith Adams, Newport, RI, funded by Commodore Harry Anderson, which will be placed inside the Mansion. Weather permitting, we look forward to having as many of us attend that weekend of events. Each person will be making their own hotel reservations. Antonio knows of some B & B locations. Also, Antonio has "challenged" the Hamiltonians, our friends, to a full debate about the ramifications of the 1804 infamous duel, on July 11 and 12, 2015, at the Mansion, an event which will coincide with a commemoration of Geo. Washington's cabinet meeting at the Morris-Jumel Mansion. This past July, Peter Tavino joined Antonio at the similar event at the Mansion, that featured a speech by Rand ______, the president of the Hamilton Awareness Society, and a speech by Antonio. The Mansion has become a very important asset of ABA, with direct relevance to Aaron's life. We want to show our bond with the Mansion. Stuart
