William Moultrie wrote to the South Carolina Delegate, addressed to New York. This was presumably received by John Kean. It describes an act of the South Carolina legislature incorporating local citizens who entered into a subscription for opening an inland navigation between Sentee and Cooper Rivers. The company has chosen 21 Directors and Moultrie is President. He requests that Colonel Tenff. [sic] returns to South Carolina as soon as he retuns from Europe. Enclosed was an advertisement for enslaved people (not present) that he asks that delegates to make public.
