Description

George Brown wrote from Fort George to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Although he feared his letter would be late reaching Greenock to catch the ship en route to New York, he could not resist writing to his aunt. Concerned over the account Susan gave of his uncle’s health. Heard from Maria R that Mrs. L had a baby boy and asked Susan to extend his congratulations to her. Discussed The Quasi-War with France and possible peace negotiations. His brigade had no less than twenty Irish Prisoners of whom the two O’Connors were the most remarkable. Brown mentioned his family was well. They had John inoculated twice, though unsuccessfully. Proposed trying again in the autumn.

People mentioned: Julian Niemcewicz and Peter Kean.
