Maxine Lurie


The document presented and transcribed here, which is archived at the Special Collections and University Archives, Rutgers University Libraries, is the first in a series of letters sent by New Jersey Loyalist Bernardus LaGrange (1721-1797) from England to his former minister, the Anglican Reverend Abraham Beach (1740-1828) of Christ Church, New Brunswick, New Jersey in America. The correspondence in this collection continues with later letters from LaGrange’s son to the minister in 1810/1811 showing that the ties were maintained for a long time.
