Jessey Perovany wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Jessey apologized for her last request as it would grieve her exceedingly to have offended Susan. Planned to set sail in a few days. Her spirits were low and it was hard for her to write. Jessey learned Spanish so she could communicate with Havana locals.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
