Julian Niemcewicz in New York, NY wrote to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, NJ. He was extremely discomforted upon hearing Susan was unwell as he believed he was to blame after an incident occurred between them on Monday night. Rumors and "unpleasant whispers" about them plagued the town, and according to Julian, the power was in Susan's hands to put an end to it. Additionally, he confided in a friend of Susan's who claimed he was in the right and Susan was wrong for her actions. Toward the end of the letter a sentence reads, "My heart breaks when I think I am to be forever separated from you."
