Henry Gahn wrote from New York, New York to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Rejoiced to have it in his power to convey happiness to Susan by forwarding a letter to her, which he at that moment received from the post office. Gahn had yet to read his letter but saw by a postscript that he [likely Julian Niemcewicz] was determined to go to Paris and return to America from a port in France. Asked in jest if Susan thought he should be Post Master General of all the countries in the world. In the postscript, Gahn mentioned he forgot Mr. Kean’s watch and asked Susan to send it to him immediately as he feared the watch master would refuse to take it back.
