Gustavus Reisberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Reisberg shared that Mr. Simpson informed him that Mrs. Rinker left no family and that her estate would go to her husband. He heard she disposed of her stock before leaving for Virginia and the money was applied toward the purchase of a farm on which Mr. Rinker lived. Believed the monied interest in Philadelphia would be redeemed in a few years. If Susan subscribed to it, her interest would be perfectly safe, and enjoy an immediate increase in income. Mentioned that another stock was in great demand though it would yield no income until 1801. Will wait on Susan with a remittance of approximately three hundred and thirty dollars from the dividends of the bank shares and the insurance company.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
