John Kean wrote to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. He wrote that he was worried he would not be back in Beaufort in time to send a letter with Wilcox, but luckily he was. He would forward Wilcox $200 which he would repay once he arrived in New York. John had been busy planting and was feeling fatigued. He wrote about how he did not like being a part from Susan and about their son, Peter Kean.
