Adolphus Eugene Watson wrote from the Highland School to Sarah Sabina Kean, addressed to Ursino, near Elizabeth Town, NJ. Watson wrote in about John Kean, Sarah's son, in response to a letter Sarah had sent to Dr. Charles Beck. He wrote that John's academic performance had improved, however, he had a deep disgust for classical studies and would not make top marks because of that. He recommended Sarah change John's course of study.
