Notes
-  Manuscript note of title page "I think this little book is valuable, as giving a description of the first of the first Convention of the of the kind that was ever held. Rhoda J. Palmer" Rhoda Palmer, who had accompanied her father to the 1848 convention, outlived both the Millers.
-  This copy is a rare, duodecimo first printing of the Report, which includes the proceeding, resolutions, declaration of sentiments and a list of the signatories; note that the 32 men are listed as "in favor of the movement" rather than signatories to the declaration
-  Enclosed with the Report are two clippings, inscribed in pen in the margin "Given to A. F. M. by Rhoda Palmer": a 1894 clipping relates a story by Col. Thomas Wigglesworth Higginson in which he says the bravest thing done during the Civil War was Dr. Thomas T. Minor offering a toast to "Our Mothers" with a glass of water during a drinking party in Beaufort, S. C.; a notice by Susan B. Anthony, Aug. 19, 1852, of an October meeting of the Women's New York State Temperance Society in Seneca Falls, New York
