Urania E. Sheldon wrote from Greenwich, NY to Julia Ursin Niemcewicz Kean and Sarah Louisa Jay Kean, addressed to Ursino, near Elizabeth Town, NJ. Urania does not yet know of the death of Peter Kean as she wrote of how fortunate they were to have such wonderful parents and asked the girls to send them her regards. She asked Julia about the wedding of George Chetwood and asked about Susan Ursin Niemcewicz health. It is important to note that this letter was written on the day Sarah Louisa Jay Kean passed.
