Julian U. Niemcewicz wrote while at sea to Susan U. Niemcewicz, unaddressed (likely Elizabethtown, New Jersey). Niemcewicz informed Susan that they had set sail and he would soon lose sight of the peaceable shores of America, but would never lose the memory of Susan and their friends. There were too many people on board but they were otherwise as comfortable as could be. The passengers all appeared to be decent people and the captain was very attentive. Requested that Susan take care of her health and hoped Peter would be attentive to her. Asked Susan to tell Betty and Tom that upon Julian’s return, if Susan was pleased with them, they would receive a reward.
