John Kean wrote from Beaufort to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. He had recieved all of Susan's letters from January and March at once. Included with them was a letter from their friend St. Clair. He thanked Susan for suppressing a letter he sent to Lewis William Otto, as he knew now it would have just upset him. Otto was possibly getting a new assignment, which John though would be good as he would be away from reminders Eliza Otto and be busy. He wrote that he did not think Peter's hair would be red, but rather light brown like his mother.
John Kean (1755-1795)
