Description

John wrote to Susan, addressed at Hanover Square, informing her "Long enough has been the reign of pride and folly." Susan is avoiding John Kean. He told her on Friday he would meet her early on Saturday evening but when he arrived, she was not home. If he formed a wrong opinion, his punishment was sufficient. John wants Susan to seriously deliberate their relationship and if she wants to end it, it would be very painful for him but he would submit.
