May 16, 1803, New York; from James Nicholson (Mary Chrystie's maternal great-grandfather, and father of Catherine Nicholson Few, Mary's maternal grandmother) to his daughter Maria. Maria is perhaps Mary's great aunt Maria Montgomery. A short letter in which Mr. Nicholson passes on news concerning the family and expresses disappointment that Maria will not be able to be with him as soon as originally expected; Mr. Nicholson patiently accepts the delay: "...yet we submit knowing it is our duty to do so, perhaps as the Alarm of War has taken another turn.'
