Lewis William Otto wrote from New York to Susan Kean, addressed to Beaufort, SC. He wrote about that his daughter, Eliza Otto, had been indisposed by teething, but was doing better. The family in Elizabethtown wanted to hear from Susan, and the De LaForest's missed Susan as did Lewis. All their friends expected John Kean, Susan's husband to have an appointment under the new government. He could not write much as Mr. Huger's ship was leaving soon but added the Gouverneur Morris was traveling to France on private business.
