Summary:
Philip Livingston is in New York; has spoken to him about the division of the Sussex swamp. Relates dealings with Mac Comb the mason about work he had done on Mr. ChurchÆs lot. Sent a bedstead for his mother (Sarah Livingston Jay), a French dictionary for Maria and Virgil for William. Paid Mr. Curtenius for the stove in the Government House. Heard that the shares of the Furnace Company, some bought from Judge Hobart, are now worth even more. The Attorney General brought down his commission as a Brigade Major and Captain, but Peter thinks there is some mistake and he should be put in the 6th regiment instead of the brigade at large. Otherwise he will not be promoted for a very long time. Has heard a rumor that Chancellor (Robert) Livingston will run against Governor Clinton and will be supported by the Federalists as well as the Livingstons.
