Susan Kean from Elizabethtown, New Jersey wrote to an unknown person, unaddressed. This letter is a draft and appears to be in the hand of her brother, Philip Livingston. Susan Kean informed the unknown correspondent that if they were to decline the trust reposed in them by Mr. Kean’s will, she would have been confident that they would do everything in their power to the advantage of her and Peter. Mentioned bonds the correspondent purchased with John Kean, a suit between Mr. Thomas Shubrick and John Kean, and property in Georgia.
