Henry Gahn wrote from New York, New York to Susan U. Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Received a few lines from Mr. [Julian] Niemcewicz dated London August 10th. Julian had only a few moments to hand the letter to Mr. Murray. However, Murray did not forward the letter to Gahn until October , even though Gahn had called on him and left a card at his house the day he returned to New York. Presumed that Murray did not want to continue their former acquaintance. Forwarded Julian’s letter addressed to Gahn, even though it was in French, so Susan could at least see her husband’s handwriting.
People mentioned: Mr. Murray, Julian U. Niemcewicz, Mr. Otto, and Peter Kean.
Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, formerly Susan Livingston and Susan Kean (1759-1833)
