John Kean wrote from Claremont to Susan Livingston, address not included. He was still at Claremont due to his gout and his friend Hindman's wishes and did not think he would move further North. He was upset that he would not get to see the Cohes. Hindman was supposed to go to Lebanon on August 15 but had to return to New York. John had been spending time with the Livingston family and mentioned reading Mr. Blair's sermon on Candour to them. He said that the "good old lady", presumably Margaret Beekman Livingston was taking good care of him. He had dined with Chancellor Robert R. Livingston, but Mrs. Livingston's health had not been well.
