Susan Kean wrote from Elizabethtown to John Kean, her husband, addressed to Beaufort, to the care of Alexander Chisholm, merchant, Charleston. She wrote about their son who was not yet named. She asked his opinion on the name Peter Philip James. She also said they needed to discuss where they would live in the summer and that Lewis William Otto was selling some of his furniture cheaply. She requested that he send some Sevil Orange trees to Sarah Ricketts. The first page is a modern note on the letter, noting that it was written on the 9th day after Peter Kean's Birth.
