Description

Susan Niemcewicz wrote from Elizabethtown, New Jersey to Julian Niemcewicz, unaddressed. While everyone in town went to hear the Oration and view the troops parading on the anniversary of American Independence, Susan was considering the holiday from a different point of view. This day marked a year since she and Julian were separated. Did not think Mr. Otto would come to America as last Susan heard he was named Minister to Berlin. Feared that the war would impede Julian from coming home. Discussed goods that Julian sent to her and items she hoped he would procure for her. Susan tried everything possible to sell their house but she was unsuccessful.

People mentioned: Peter Kean, Mrs. Cardeaux, and enslaved people and servants Tom, Philip, and Betty.
