Description

Julian U. Niemcewicz wrote from London, England to Susan U. Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Niemewicz enclosed the bill from Wedgwood and wished Susan was satisfied with the purchase. He also sent a Tapper [taper] because he knew Susan liked the candle sticks “clean and nice.” Sent Peter a diamond pin and told Susan to give it to him as a reward for his good behavior. Glad to quit the “abyss of money” as he felt it was inconceivable how dear everything was. Mr. Otto informed him that he spends about £450 a month. Niemcewicz extended his well wishes to Susan, Peter, the Ricketts, and the Daytons.

People mentioned: Peter Kean, Mr. Otto, Mr. and Mrs. Ricketts, Maria Ricketts, and the Daytons.
