John Kean wrote from Beaufort to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. John had finally received letters sent by Susan and her family letting him know she delivered the baby and both are healthy. He recommended she have the baby inoculated as soon as it was safe to do so. He would return to her in May, but is not sure how yet. He wished Schermerhorn had left Savannah a little sooner. If he had then John could have gone with him on his return and taken charge of Betsey Bayard since Houstoun had no plans of returning.
John Kean (1755-1795)
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston, and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
