John Kean wrote from Beaufort to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. He wrote about how much he missed Susan and longed to be with her in New York as well as his health. He sent her a branch from a Pride of India tree and described its beauty. All the merchants except one had closed up shop and he was unable to get Susan the items she requested.
