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.'
To Maria; 1803 May 16; Mary Chrystie Papers, Box 1, Folder 13; , Princeton University Library.
