John Kean wrote from Charleston to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. Tinker had left with bills of exchange to deliver to Susan, but John was enclosing duplicates in case those were lost. He had been held up in Charleston by the bad weather. He had been staying in his room by the fire for his health. He wrote at length about how the weather affects his health and his cough. He said usually he would go to Long Island and was glad to not be in the New York cold.
John Kean (1755-1795)
