Peter Van Brugh Livingston wrote from Elizabethtown to John Kean, addressed to Hanover Square, No. 3, New York, NY. He wrote that he received John Kean's letter, including the one for Mr. Rutherfurd which was given to Mr. Dayton to forward. He hoped that John and Susan's health was better, but said that Peter was doing fine. Eliza Otto was also with him and has grown her first tooth. He was unable to gift John the rent for the house and suggested they work on finding a smaller house and then seeing what could be done.
