Herman LeRoy wrote from New York, New York to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. LeRoy informed Susan that Robinson’s acceptance was punctually paid. He would remember his promise to Susan the moment they put another vessel in the India Trade. Their views were always set towards China but a suitable vessel had yet to be found, even an indifferent one cost a mint of money. LeRoy felt it necessary to begin calculating a Peace Trade. Mentioned in the postscript that the reports of the fever were exaggerated. No more than four died from it and six were sick. New York had never been healthier.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
