Lewis Otto wrote from Paris, France to John Kean, unaddressed. Otto drew up a bill of four hundred and twenty dollars for the amount of the interest due by Mr. Biddle. Asked Kean to advance the money if the interest was not paid or have his friend La Forest advance it. Ottos discussed family news, extended pleasantries to Mrs. Kean, and hoped that during the cruel war, things remained quiet in Kean’s charming and flourishing country.
