Annotation / Notes: An introduction to the group of Annapolis wits whose humorous proceedings have survived in a manuscript at the Johns Hopkins University. The antics of the Tuesday Club open a window on the climate of civil discourse that characterized the Golden Era in Annapolis.

The actual minutes of the club as edited by Professor Breslaw have been published as the Records of the Tuesday Club, 1745 - 1756.
