Gustavus Reisberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean at 89 Liberty Street, New York, New York. Reisberg relinquished the agency and explained to Susan that her orders were better off in more capable hands. Mr. Simpson delivered nine scripts that awaited Susan’s order and the surplus money of two hundred twenty-five dollars was to be returned. Also discussed last year’s taxes Susan had to pay from that sum. Reisberg wrote to Caleb Adler, an upholsterer, to wait on Susan with a piece of green satin that he received as a pattern to show the quality. The remaining silk was to be forwarded by one of their traders to New York to the care of Philip Livingston.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
