P. Van Berckle wrote from Philadelphia to Miss Livingston, most likely Susan Livingston, address not included. He wrote that his son was going to New York and he wanted him to make Susan's acquaintance. He also asked about her father Peter Van Brugh Livingston, step-mother, Elizabeth Livingston, and sister Eliza Livingston. Susan at this point was married to John Kean, but it is possibly that Van Berckle did not know that.
