Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean 89 Liberty Street, New York, New York. Risberg informed Susan that according to her last order, he requested Mr. Simpson subscribe 27 shares to the new loan. Although he anticipated some surplus, he had no idea that the subscriptions would amount to nearly three times the sum wanted. Nine shares were allocated to Susan and more would be issued in seven to ten days. Bansall made an overture for the lot on behalf of B.W. Morris at £75 annum ground rent.
