Susan Livingston wrote from Cranes Farm near Elizabethtown, New Jersey to Philip Livingston in Greenburgh, New York. Susan informed her brother Philip that she received a letter from Mr. Stephens (see William Stephens to Susan Kean, September 4, 1799) along with an account of the lands in Georgia. She believed a deed could be drawn from the descriptions provided by Stephens. Susan transcribed Stephens’ letter for Philip Livingston that included the Georgia lands and her tax return for 1799. If she knew where Mr. Reade was, she would enquire with him regarding her business Southward.
