Kitty Nielson wrote from Sandyhill, New Jersey to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Based on Mrs. Robinson’s account of the situation with Harriet’s arm, Kitty Nielson apprehended that she should be put under the care of a skillful surgeon. Her sister had spoken of Harriet in so light a manner that Kitty had no idea it was so serious an injury. Advised John to bring her by water as she feared the motion of a carriage would be too severe for her.
People mentioned: Harriet, Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Armstrong, and Mrs. Ricketts.
Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, formerly Susan Livingston and Susan Kean (1759-1833)
