Eliza Gough wrote from Beaufort to Susan Kean, addressed to Philadelphia. She wrote that John Kean, Susan's husband, could have a post for life at Northward and part her hoped he would so Susan would be closer. She mentioned the death of Mr. Eveleigh (presumably Nicholas Eveleigh who died in 1791). She had heard from someone in the neighborhood of Mr. Ropell that her daughter Polly was sick at the Ferry and sent a servant to check if it was true. Polly had a slight fever but was well and Eliza was going to get her the next day.
