John Kean wrote from Charleston to Susan Kean, his wife, addressed to No. 32 Broad Street, New York, NY. South Carolina reached a decision regarding the new constitution, becoming the 8th state to ratify it. He did not think living in Elizabethtown would be a good idea, and would explain more when he saw her. The cold weather brought back his cough, but it seemed to be getting better. He planned on sailing to New York Thursday.
John Kean (1755-1795)
