Isabelle Bell wrote to Susan U. Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Bell expressed her disappointment in not receiving a line from Susan. She sent Bell Lucretia Rephans subscription epistle, but Susan refrained from writing a letter to her. Bell did not execute any of Susan’s commissions in New York because her time there was short. Miss Resham heard that Mr. B Livingston told his sister, Mrs. J. Livingston that he would offer Bell a salary to live in his house and take charge of his children’s education. Asked if Susan what she thought of her being an author and if Susan would subscribe to a small volume that may have the good fortune to rival the poems of the immortal Scarron.
