George Van Brugh Brown wrote from Ayr, Scotland to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Brown had yet to receive a response since his last favor to his aunt, Susan dated the 10th of March. Hoped that she and Peter were well. Found it unusual that his friends in America had an aversion to writing. In the last four weeks war had been declared and carried with it fury and animosity. Planned to join his Regiment the Galloway Militia soon. Provided updates on his family’s health and asked about his uncle, Julian Niemcewicz.
People mentioned: Peter Kean, Julian Niemcewicz, and Elizabeth Brown.
