At a meeting of the Committee January 5th, 1898, one of the subjects for the day was "Jersey City's Old Landmarks." In the discussion that followed, Miss. M. Louise Edge, moved that Mrs. Eaton be requested to 'write a short history of Jersey City, to be published by the Club; the proceeds of which to be used to erect memorial tablets on historic sites of the Colonial and Revolutionary periods.

At the meeting of October 12th 1898, Mrs. Eaton made the following report:
Madam Chairman and Ladies of the Literature Committee:
I take pleasure in reporting that in accordance with the request of this Committee embodied in the motion made by Miss M. Louise Edge upon January 15th, 1898, I have prepared the story of Jersey City. My authorities have been: Winfield's History of Hudson County, The Jersey City Journal's History of Jersey City Colonial and City Records, Versteeg's Translation of the Deacons' Accounts of the Bergen Church, Taylor's Annals of the Classis and Township of Bergen, and numerous descendants of the old colonial families, -- the Van Reypens, Van Horns, Van Winkles, Sips, Newkirks and many others, to- all of whom I am greatly indebted. Also to Dr. Brett, who has kindly assisted me with his great store of historic data. I wish particularly to express my great indebtedness to Mr. C. C. Van Reypen, who, with his wonderful memory and knowledge of Bergen, has been of invaluable assistance to me

Respectfully submitted,
