Overview and metadata sections

The Dorcassian Society of Burlington, New Jersey also referred to itself as the Burlington Dorcassian Society, the Dorcas Society, and D.S. It was founded in 1839, and appears to have dissolved at the end of the minute book, in 1860. The mission of the Dorcassion Society was to provide relief work to the poor, in particular clothing.

This collection is comprised of one volume of minutes and attendence lists from 1843 - 1860. The minutes describe the work of the organization, including reports from their relief work and financial reports.
