John Kean wrote to Susan Livingston, unaddressed. The letter began with a reference to to the literary work Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe as John compared not being able to see Susan to being trapped on a desert island. He then inquired if she had been feeling better and informed her that his illness had subsided. The letter ended with John explaining some of the various activities he completed in an effort to distract himself from not being with Susan. This item is not dated.
