Julia Ursin Niemcewicz wrote from New York to John Kena, her brother, addressed to Nassau Hall, Princeton, NJ. She wrote about different people she had seen and what she had been doing. She was upset with John for presumably disturbing the gravesite of a Black man and suggested that he enroll in a phrenology lecture so he could "examine as many heads as [he] please[ed]" Julia herself wanted to take a phrenology class, but they would not have the money until April.
