Susan Niemcewicz wrote from Elizabethtown, New Jersey to Julian Niemcewicz in Warsaw, Poland. This letter is a copy of the one she sent on the same date [May 10, 1803]. Susan listed items she wished for Julian to procure for her before he returned home to Elizabethtown. The lots that belonged to her father’s estate were being offered for sale at auction in June. Susan thought it would be good property for them to retain but decided to leave it to her brother’s direction. Peter had not yet acquired a fondness for the “dead language” and she feared Julian would not be satisfied with his slow progress. Wished Peter had all kinds of books, maps, etc. Shared news on their mutual family and friends.
