In 1838, the United States Hotel was the site of a banquet honoring George M. Dallas, Lawyer, former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania,and former U.S. Ambassador to Czarist Russia. And 78 of his fellow lawyers attended. (I found the an invitation card in his Archives at Temple University Libraries),  The Hotel is no longer on the three hundred block of Chestnut street.

  1. I visited this site yesterday, and there are two buildings there, one is the American Philosophical Society and the other is “The Philadelphia Bank”. The Bank was built in 1878.
