Chistine Biddle wrote to Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, addressed to Elizabethtown, NJ and forwarded by Maria P. Ricketts. Christine mentions that she told Peter Kean her family was looking for a new home. She was confined in town and send her family of children to the country during the month of August. She felt this was the best decision because her last two confinements had her in very precarious circumstances. She kept to her bed for a week and her room for a month before the event took place. Her and her family are now settled in their new home on 4th Street.
