Sarah Sabina Kean wrote from Ursino to John Cox Morris, her brother, addressed to Butternuts, Otsego, NY. Sarah was worried about the health of her son Jacob Morris Kean and she and her husband, Peter Kean, bought an "electrical machine that was strongly recommended for him." She gave other news of family including her other children and remarked that she and Peter were going to set him up with Sarah Louisa Jay so he would not be an old bachelor.
