John Kean wrote from Beaufort to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. He wrote about his health and how he almost felt envious of James Ricketts and Lewis William Otto as they are in good health and did not have to be separated from their wives. His sister, Jane Corvaisier gave birth early due to an earthquake and the baby died soon after. She was traveling to France to recover. He sent his best to Mrs. Chancellor and prayed for her health and was glad to hear Peter Van Brugh Livingston was doing better. He hoped that should a vacancy occur in the Treasury he would be appointed and asked Susan to consider the possibility of moving to Philadelphia.
John Kean (1755-1795)
