Philip Livingston to Susan Livingston, January 25, 1799
Philip Livingston wrote from New York, New York to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Livingston informed Susan that he was taken ill and obliged to remain in bed for three or four days. He settled with John Brown’s agent and received Greenleaf’s debt in cash. Asked Susan how she wanted her money invested, whether in the new loan, other funds, part on interest in the new loan, or part on interest in the land security. Thanked Susan for the recipe for the balm of life. Includes an embroidery pattern drawn on the third page of the manuscript.
