Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Risberg informed Susan of a draft of money he enclosed as well as the status of her cash orders. Discussed the Legislature being in session and that Mr. Tilghman had been so busy attending Court that did not tend to Mr. Meade’s business yet. Mentioned the dividends for the insurance company and Susan’s shares. Mrs. Rinker passed away and Risberg selected a weekly publication for the amusement of Peter – the price was two dollars per annum.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
