Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Risberg acknowledged Susan’s letter where she enclosed three bank notes that amounted to $200 and informed her that he would take care of the last installment of the new loan. The melancholy situation in Philadelphia caused a decline in real estate. If Susan were to sell her house, Risberg suggested she demand £3000 because the price could be lowered afterward.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston, and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
