Julia Ursin Niemcewicz wrote from New York to John Kean, her brother, addressed to Nassau Hall, Princeton, NJ. She wrote updates about people and what she was doing. Julia was upset with John for presumably disturbing the gravesite of a Black man and suggested that he enroll in a phrenology lecture. Julia herself wanted to take a phrenology class, but would not have the money to attend until April.
