Description

Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. The gentleman who claimed he saw Susan’s house advertised for sale in the newspapers was mistaken. If a good offer was made for it, Risberg thought Susan should accept it because keeping the house in order and good repairs was expensive. Mrs. Cox had again made overtures for Susan’s house in Philadelphia and discussed Susan selling her estate. Susan’s ticket in the Washington Lottery and its highest price were still in the Wheel of Fortune and were likely to remain so for years to come.
