John Kean wrote from Claremont to Susan Livingston, address not included. He had received her letters and some from South Carolina upon returning to Claremont, including a parcel of watermelons. He would travel tomorrow to Poughkeepsie and then slowly down to New York. He did not think Hindman would marry soon and that he would be in New York as soon as John got there. Mrs. M and Edward also talked about leaving Saturday. He was glad to hear Mrs. L paid Susan a visit and that Susan's health had improved.
