Title from head of card. The text continues: "All the fathers, husbands and brothers of the ladies invited, with the members of a certain society, will to a moral certainty, be carefully excluded. As the present select assembly is intended as a refinement on innovation, the ladies will, on this occasion, be authorised to ask the gentlemen. Top of Constitution Hill. With carriage, or without carriage, you may set down any way, and take up any how."
The card would presumably have been distributed discreetly by hand.
