Boswell was introduced to Kircheisen, described as "a hearty cordial saxon", on July 9, 1764, and, with a recommendation from Schickler, he rented an apartment in Kircheisen's house for the duration of his stay in Berlin.
Boswell quickly became very friendly with the family, and on July 18, 1764 wrote that "Herr President embraced me with cordiality and cried, "My dear Englishman, no man ever had a better heart. Your being sent to my house was an act of Providence."
