Sarah Sabina Kean wrote from Ursino to John Kean, her son, addressed to Highland School, Cold Spring, Putnam County, NY. Sarah was sure that John should continue to pursue classical studies after consulting with other people. She said that he was just a smart as other boys and just needed to work harder. She also admonished him for writing in a letter to his sister, Julia Ursin Niemcewicz Kean that he did not respect one of his teachers. There is a short note from Susan Ursin Niemcewicz on the back asking him to visit soon.
