Description

Julian Ursin Niemcewicz wrote from Bardfeld, Hungaria to Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, his wife, in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. He had been sending and receiving correspondence through Hamburg, however due to the Napoleonic Wars the port was being blockaded. As a result he had not heard from Susan since January. He is visiting Hungaria on advice from his physician and anticipates being home by Christmas. The letter was sent to Samuel Williams in London and he forwarded it to Susan.

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 Elizabeth-Town, 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.
