John Kean wrote from Savannah to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. His friend Schermerhorn was traveling up to New York and agreed to take this letter. John visited his nieces Mary and Eliza Houstoun. He is staying in Savannah with his friend John Habersham and his wife. His other friend Stephens is ill and John would have to visit him again before returning to New York. He planned on returning to Beaufort on April 5, as April 11 was when delegates to the Constitutional Convention were to be elected.
