The upright cursive with horizontal contrast and the large descending initials is Pencraft, designed by Herman Ihlenburg for MS&J in 1885. “Complimentary” might be Antique No. 310, a precursor to Bookman (see also Old Style Antique No. 7). The italic is Old Style No. 2 or similar. While the wide sans serif used for “Committee” is unidentified, the names appear to be set in Ronaldson (1884).
