Description

John Kean wrote from Beaufort to Susan Kean, his wife, addressed to No. 32 Broad Street, New York. He wrote the story of Dr. Robertson who had 21 children and outlived all but one of them and his words of wisdom on his misfortune. He hoped she would share this with her father Peter Van Brugh Livingston, as he had recently lost his daughter Eliza Otto.
