Henry Gahn wrote from New York, New York to Susan U. Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Susan’s letter addressed to Captain Paul was only handed to him yesterday on account of Gahn changing his lodgings from No 13 Broad Street to No 35 Wall Street. The entry was made at the Custom House, but due to an omission of the invoice for the Wedgwood Ware, it was impossible to dispense with the formality of having the box opened and examined at the Public Store. It was at that point in the charge of the storekeeper who promised to take the greatest care of it until the appraisal was completed. Laws rendered this inconvenience and delay altogether unavoidable. Asked if Susan knew of the particular quantity of articles contained in the box. Received a letter from Julian Niemcewicz dated August 25 from Hamburg.
