Herman LeRoy wrote from New York, New York to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. LeRoy received Susan’s letter of the 19th instant requesting a subscription to 50 shares of the Manhattan Company. LeRoy met with Susan’s brother, Philip Livingston since he had no opinion of the Manhattan Company. Livingston subscribed to 1000 shares and informed LeRoy that there was no great risk in taking the 50 shares for Susan. Many mechanics and shopkeepers subscribed but may have difficulty making a second payment.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
