1890. 1797–1807. JULIAN URSYN NIEMCEWICZ (1758–1841)

Niemcewicz was a Polish patriot, a statesman, and a prolific author. He was born in Lithuania and elected to the Polish parliament in 1788. Later he became Kosciuszko's aide-de-camp during the insurrection of 1794 and was captured and imprisoned. Upon his release he left for the United States with Kosciuszko in 1797. After living briefly in Philadelphia, he settled in Elizabeth, N.J., where he married a prominent widow. Family obligations recalled him to Poland in 1802, and he remained there for two years. From 1804 to 1807 he lived again in America, keeping journals that describe his domestic and private life and local people and scenes. Impressionistic in nature, the journals reflect the early and relatively unexplored history of American-Polish cultural relations.

1891. Under Their Vine and Fig Tree; Travels Through America in 1797–1799, 1805, with some further account of life in New Jersey. Translated and edited, with an introduction and notes, by Metchie J. E. Budka. Elizabeth, N.J., Grassmann Pub. Co. [1965] lvii, 398 p. illus. (Collections of the New Jersey Historical Society at Newark, v. 14) 65–15378 F131.N62 vol. 14

A translation of the author's manuscript notebooks, originally written in French or Polish and first published in Polish under the title Podróze po Ameryce, 17971807 (1959).
