Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Riseberg sent Susan a statement of his annual account and enclosed Mr. Simpson’s draft for the balance of one hundred forty-five dollars and forty-seven cents. No dividends were received on the N.A. Insurance Shares, however, were worth six dollars a share and would be worth more in value in a few years.
