John Kean wrote to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. The letter has four dates January 27, January 30, February 3, and February 7. John was anxious to hear from Susan and when her letters did arrive he was relieved. He would write to Peter Van Brugh Livingston and Lewis William Otto, but he did not know what to say. His health had not been very good due to the cold. On the 7th he wrote that today should be the day Susan gives birth and expressed his hopes and fears.
