Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Acknowledged Susan’s favor of the 7th Instant and observed that Mr. Niemcewicz was still in Europe. Mr. Cox was supposed to notify Susan if she wanted to move out of her house in Philadelphia, but Risberg doubted Mrs. Cox would move because she was fond of the neighborhood. Mr. Smith declined to receive dividends unless they were paid into the Bank, which induced Risberg to delay the transfer of the Insurance Shares in the event that a dividend be made in July. He was enabled to receive it on the Turnpike Shares as well. The Power for Mr. Simpson to receive the Bank dividend would be forwarded in due time.
