Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Risberg informed Susan that he had not heard from her since he let Robert Morris rent the lot on Walnut Street in Philadelphia at eighty pounds per annum. Asked Susan to send him the date of the deed from Robert Wood to Mr. Kean as it must be inserted in the deed between her and Morris. Robert Smith’s young man called upon Risberg for Susan’s silks on behalf of Reverend Mr. Hubbard. Risberg sent the silks to Mr. Smith’s store with a receipt to be signed by Mr. Hubbard. The Power of Attorney for transferring the eighty percent stock was delayed on account of the Public Offices and the Treasury Department being removed to Washington.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston, and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
