Sarah Ricketts wrote to Susan Kean in New York, New York. Sarah had just heard Cato intended to go early in the morning to New York, therefore she could only write a few lines. She had been troubled with a headache and languor for a few days. She attributed her restlessness to wanting to exercise and she planned on riding on horseback. Sarah took medicine but did not feel better. Feared Peter had no more Methegalin [Metheglin]. She received a letter from G. Brown and he said he would set out soon with Captain Duncanson. The children were all recovered. This document is undated.
