Susan Niemcewicz wrote from Elizabethtown, New Jersey to James McEvers in New York. Susan informed McEvers that before she received his favor, her son, Peter, had taken charge of his notes and brought them to Mr. LeRoy to have them renewed for her. Her brother, Philip, had been making a dividend from their father’s estate and asked if either McEvers or LeRoy would advise her on how to invest it. On the verso, Susan added a few lines dated January 6, 1804, where she informed McEvers that she meant to thank him for his last mark of attention but she was waiting on an answer from her brother. Discussed dividends and information she received from Mr. Ricketts.
