Grant-Colfax Inaugural invitation to Miss Foote

I am the executive director of the Center for History in South Bend, Indiana. We recently obtained a copy of the Grant-Colfax inaugural reception invitation which is addressed simply to "Miss Foote & Escort." This event was held in Washington DC in 1869. I am curious to know if there are family connections to either Washington DC or to the Grant-Colfax administration at that time. Our interest stems from Vice President Schuyler Colfax being a native of South Bend and, arguably, our most famous citizen.

Thank you for your consideration.

Randy Ray
