George Van Brugh Brown wrote from Glasgow, Scotland to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Worried Susan would think him negligent for not writing often. The last time Brown wrote Susan, he expected to be quartered at Aberdeen but the destination of the troops was changed and they were stationed 12 miles from Fort George where they remained for 14 months. Sorry to hear of the continued bad state of his uncle’s health. He had no words to express his sorrow upon hearing of poor Eliza Otto’s death. Although it happened in August, Brown had only just heard of it. Asked of his cousin Maria Ricketts and gave his kindest regards to Peter Kean and Julian Niemcewicz.
People mentioned: Peter Kean, Maria Ricketts, Eliza Otto, and Julian Niemcewicz.
