About This Item

An engraved form printed on an untrimmed sheet with the 1796 and month of March, with manuscript annotations. For the sum of fifty pounds, Bernard Repelye, a grocer located at 70 Front Street, secured the right to "keep an Inn or Tavern for retailing strong or spiritous Liquors in his Dwelling-House …" for a period of one year. Mr. Repelye was prohibited during the time he held this license from keeping "… a disorderly Inn or Tavern, or suffer or permit any Cock-fighting, Gaming, or Playing with Cards or Dice, or keep any Billiard-Table, or other Gaming-Table, or Shuffle-Board, within the Inn or Tavern by him to be kept, or within any Out-House, Yard or Garden belonging there-unto; then this Recognizance to be void, else to remain in full Force." Signed, Richard Varick (1753-1831) as the Mayor of New York, serving from 1789-1801. An original printed form with manuscript annotations in ink, printed on heavy laid paper, slight browning, but in very good condition.
