Philip Livingston wrote from New York, NY (based on context) to his brother-in-law John Kean, no address, but likely Philadelphia, PA. The letter missed the post by 10 minutes, because Harry was "too late."
Yesterday they [names not included] looked for a "House for the Department." They prefer to lease but everyone who answered said no. Locations included: Rivington's Corner, the Center, Wall Street to Smith Street, Queens Street to the Eastward, to the Fly Market, Westward, Hanover Square, Hunter, and Duryci.
Names included: Mr. Bayard, Frederick Jay, DewLursh, and Mr. Wilkinson.
