This letter was written "by the pen of J. Jackson" on behalf of Sarah Rickets, no location, to her sister Susan Kean, addressed to John Kean, Commissioner of Public Accounts, Philadelphia. Sarah offered congratulations, but didn't give the reason. She mentions many acquaintances, but little information about them. Near the end Sarah wrote "the Creoles have worried me," but it's not clear why. The letter is difficult to read.
Sarah Rickets, formerly Sarah Livingston (1755-1825)
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
