Description
 
The Brooklyn Tabernacle is a evangelical non-denominational mega church in Brooklyn, NY, which was established in 1849, and is still in existence today. This newsletter is advertising the Brooklyn Tabernacle's Annual Grand Pilgrimage, which in 1887 was to Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Newport for six days. The tickets cost fifteen dollars, and included the entire cost of the trip. The front cover has a black and white image of a steam ship named "Pilgrim" which the church members would use to travel to Martha's Vineyard. Below the image is an itinerary for the trip. Within the newsletter is a more information on Martha's Vineyard itself as well as an open letter from the pastor of the church, Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage. The majority of the newsletter is made up of advertisements. It is unclear if these companies were sponsoring just the trip or the church as a whole. 16 pages, staple bindings. Measures 13 1/2" x 10".
