Marianne wrote from Mount Pleasant to Susan, care of Ricketts Esq, Elizabeth Town, NJ. Her boys recovered from measles, they visited friends “in the Delaware,” then became ill for an extended time. The roads are in poor condition, preventing her female friends from visiting. Marianne inquired about Jane Grove Corvaisier, who lived in Germantown when Mr. Bradford died [U.S. Attorney General William Bradford 1755-1795]. Corvaisier was melancholy and recently moved in with Mrs. Duponseau (?).
Names included: Mr. Williams, Christine Williams, Mrs. Green, Mrs. Ricketts, and Peter Kean.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
