Mary Ramsay wrote to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Mrs. Armstrong safely delivered a little boy. She had been unwell for a long time and was restored to health. Congratulated Susan on her marriage to Julian, Mary had heard so many positive things about him. Susan was so “domestic a character” that the idea of being obliged to fulfill so many engagements would disgust her, although Susan was never interested in social gatherings as much as her sister. Mary’s brother had gone to Charleston for a few months. She claimed he was too much of a rover and feared he would never settle. Peter was excelling rapidly in his studies.
Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, formerly Susan Livingston and Susan Kean (1759-1833)
