John Kean wrote from Charleston to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. To try and recoup money from the fire he had sold his horses and planned on traveling to Beaufort tomorrow. Jones and Strong arrived from Philadelphia, he had not seen Mrs. Butler yet to give her Nancy's gift, and Mrs. Roberts had no yet received the lace. If the new government is put into place John hoped to be elected as a representative. Susan was unable to travel with him to South Carolina as she was pregnant.
John Kean (1755-1795)
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston, and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
