John wrote to his wife, Susan, no address. Names included: Alexander Hamilton, Mr.Barclay, John Beaty, Simpson, Franks, Lawrence, Jonathan Smith, Price, Mr. Willing, Thomas Smith, Stowe and Mandeville, Cochran and Risberg, and Terence. The dead: Walker, the French Consul, Wigton the schoolmaster, and from the Bank of Pennsylvania, the chief bookkeeper and one Porter. John had to hire "four new hands." He will try and visit Susan the following day but doubts he can get a seat on the mail stage without going directly to New York. As soon as Terence gets confident in driving, he will send him up.
