George Brown wrote from Fort George to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Brown hoped that one day Peter and his little boy could be acquainted and develop a friendship. His baby boy was learning to walk, speaking a few words, and clapping his hands when desired. His daughter was quite randy but very smart. They were uncertain regarding peace and war. The foreign journals reported a separate peace, which Brown did not believe. Observed in the newspapers that the French sent over Mr. Otto as charge “des” affairs and asked if this was Eliza’s father.
