John Kean wrote from Claremont to Susan Livingston, address not included. Hindman had arrived on Saturday, but they postponed their trip to Lebanon until Thursday, partly due to Robert R. Livingston's ongoing lawsuit. John said that if the trip got delayed again he would not go as he was expected in New York on September 1. He hoped that Susan would accept an invitation to go to Elizabethtown as the country air would be good for her health. Kitty was excited by Hindman's return and spent the day with him. The next day John planned to go to the upper manor to see Susan's uncle.
