Susan Niemcewicz wrote from Elizabethtown, New Jersey to an unknown person (likely James McEvers.) Before she was favored with their last letter, Mr. James Ricketts told Susan that her brother, Philip, had said if she wished it, she might be interested in purchasing lots that belonged to her father’s estate. Susan requested that her portion of the last dividend be invested in that property. She informed her brother but he was ill and did not respond to her favor. Enclosed two checks; one of her brother’s on the Manhattan Bank and one of her own on the United States. The money sent by Mr. Gahn would pay the Bond and interest due on the Carolina Company and a portion invested in United States stocks.
