William Stephens wrote from Savannah to John Kean, address not included.He wrote about how people are wanting too high a price for rice lands, but that Major Habersham had written John on that subject. Georgia was most likely going to follow South Carolina in passing an installment act. He suggested not pressing the Bryan Estate or Barmah property unless John wanted more paper money. J. Elbert had paid W. Devaux so Devaux should be able to pay John soon. Captain Pray pressed for their case to go to arbitration.
