Description

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.

Collection

The Liberty Hall Collection consists of the correspondence, financial records, legal documents, and other manuscript material of the Livingston and Kean families, dated from 1686-1847. The bulk of the collection is related to Susan Livingston Kean Niemcewicz (1759-1833). The Livingston and Kean families frequently corresponded and held accounts with other prominent colonial and early American families in New Jersey, especially Elizabethtown, Philadelphia, New York City, upstate New York, England, France, and Poland. A small portion of the collection includes correspondence with early Virginia families, unrelated to the Livingston and Kean families.
