John Rutherfurd wrote to Susan Kean (likely in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). Rutherford informed Susan that he had just returned from New York and found her letter with Mr. Kean’s request that he should receive an assignment of Robert Barnwell’s bonds and pay them the money as he received it. It was with great pain to hear that John Kean’s health prevented him from continuing to work at the First Bank of the United States. Hoped the fine weather of May and June helped him make a full recovery. This document is undated but appears to have been written in April 1795.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston, and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
circa April 1795
