Julia Ursin Niemcewicz Kean wrote John Kean, her brother, addressed to Nassau Hall, Princeton, NJ. She wrote about an upcoming trip to Scholley's Mountain as well as an Opera the family had attended. She said there was no real news to share except the "loss of the excellent old friend of America, the last hero of the revolution", which mostly likely referred to Gilbert du Motier the Marquis de Lafayette.
