Description

William wrote to John, addressed to New York. William said the payment was delayed by a local loan officer, who doesn't yet have instructions. The Federal Circuit Court will likely delay "Wereat against Kean" until next April. William suggested John sell his land before the trial so he can get more money and cover his debts. He also wrote about Guarda Courtes, Colonel [Alexander] Hamilton, and John Wood, concerning a boat.

Collection

The Liberty Hall Collection consists of the correspondence, financial records, legal documents, and other manuscript material of the Livingston and Kean families, dated from 1686-1847. The bulk of the collection is related to Susan Livingston Kean Niemcewicz (1759-1833). The Livingston and Kean families frequently corresponded and held accounts with other prominent colonial and early American families in New Jersey, especially Elizabethtown, Philadelphia, New York City, upstate New York, England, France, and Poland. A small portion of the collection includes correspondence with early Virginia families, unrelated to the Livingston and Kean families.
