Susan U. Niemcewicz wrote from Elizabethtown, New Jersey to Julian Niemcewicz in Varsavia [Warsaw], Poland. Susan could not let the first day of a year elapse without writing her dear husband in the hopes that he was enjoying every kind of felicity that the season afforded. For two weeks she had been indisposed to write, the cold weather always gave her a “stricture” across her chest. Urged Julian to pay attention to the ship he planned to sail back to America in and to make sure it was not one of the dull failing Dutch ships. Discussed livestock and produce at their farm and the lack of income it produced. Updated Julian on Peter and the hired servants at their home.
