John Robertson wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Julian Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Robertson acknowledged Julian’s favor of the 3rd instant and noticed the postscript dated the 11th inclosing Susan Niemcewicz’s power of attorney to collect the rent of her house on Walnut Street in Philadelphia, as well as ground rent from Robert Morris. Robertson saw Horace Binney who wanted many repairs done to the house including papering, painting, and a few additional repairs. An estimate for a new sink had to wait on account of the snow. Did not receive the rent from Mrs. Cox the day prior as he expected to receive Mr. Morris’s ground rent but Morris informed him it was not convenient for him to pay at present. Discussed Susan’s shares and how no prices could be obtained for them.

People mentioned: Susan Niemcewicz, Robert Morris, Mrs. Cox, and Horace Binney.
