We recently had a question about the original Palatine settlers in Rhinebeck, our reply can be found on this page. Here is the link to the Palatine Farmstead site. The Palatine Farmstead, located at the historic center of Old Rhinebeck on the Post Road, is one of only a small number of surviving structures built by first generation Palatine immigrants in the Hudson Valley.

The photo above show a gathering on July 7, 1888 marking the official notification of Levi P Morton's nomination for Vice President under Benjamin Harrison. When Harrison defeated Cleveland in 1888 it was the third time that the winner of the Presidency was not the winner of the popular vote.

Here is an excerpt or an article from the Albany Express, July 8, 1880 - VOL. XLIL, NO. 69.
ALBANY, N. Y., SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 8, 1888.
THE COMMITTEE NOTIFY THE NEXT VICE-PRESIDENT.
A Neat Address by Chairman Estee and a Brief But Pointed Reply
By the Distinguished Nominee - The Town Decked With the Starry Banner.
RHINEBECK, July 7.— The Hon. Levi P. Morton was officially informed this afternoon by the notification committee representing the republican national convention of his nomination as the candidate of the republican party for the office of vice-president. It was a gala day for Rhinebeck. The residents of the old town and of the surrounding district decided yesterday that they would show the notification committee how much they appreciated the honor conferred upon them in selecting a candidate from the vicinity. They also decided that they would start the campaign with a boom, so everybody took a hand in the festivities. Soon after sunrise flags and bunting were placed in conspicuous position. The stars and stripes fluttered gracefully. One handsome silk banner was hoisted at the depot, and from there to Rhinebeck village, a distance of three miles, flags were to be seen in every direction. The village itself looked very gay; the town hall and hotel were festooned. Harrison and Morton banners were drawn across the streets.
ARRIVAL AT RHINEBECK.
At Rhinebeck the committee was met by a local committee, consisting of George Esselstyne, William Bergh Kip, T. W. Bates, Eugene Wells and Martin Hermance. They were headed by Ackert's brass band, which played stirring airs, while the crowds were getting off the train. Behind the local committee a large number of villagers were gathered, clad in holiday attire and wearing Harrison and Morton badges. It was evident that a majority of them were for Tippecanoe Harrison and Morton too. Rousing cheers were given before the procession moved. The local committee and the band then escorted the members of the committee and the visitors from the station to the village. About forty carriages were provided for the committeemen and visitors. En route to the village the band awoke the echoes of the hills about by playing patriotic airs. Everybody was in good humor and anxious to cheer for the ticket. At the village everything seemed to be in holiday attire. The houses were decorated with flags and red and blue bunting and business was practically suspended. After reaching the village the route lay over Mr. Wells's hill, down East Market Street to Mill Street, along Mill Street to Huntington Place. It was lined with sight-seers all the way.
Mr. Morton, arrayed in black clothes and looking in splendid health, stood in the center of his drawing-room and received the committee. Mrs. Morton, handsome and elegantly attired, stood beside her husband during the notification ceremony. Mrs. Morton's mother, Mrs. Street, and her brother, W. L. Street, and a number of friends of the family were grouped in the rear of the future vice-president. The speeches were short and to the point. Chairman Estee, clad in a black frock coat, wearing a Harrison and Morton badge, was ushered Into the drawing-room and advanced to within a few feet of Mr. Morton. He was accompanied by Capt. Dougherty. Immediately behind them came the other members of the committee
