John Brown wrote to Susan Livingston addressed to the care of Peter V.B. Livingston in New York, New York. Brown informed Susan that he went to Edinburgh to bring home Miss Mary, of which he engaged a governess who was recommended in the strongest terms by people he looked upon as Judges. Immediately after she arrived in the country, she was seized with the whooping cough. George V.B. was also affected. Hoped Mrs. Ricketts was well and had yet to hear of Philip’s arrival in England. This document is torn.
