R. Pringle wrote from Charleston to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort. He received John's letter and had hoped to send one back with Mr. Ellliot. He had supplied shoes for a number of enslaved people on Port Royal Island and the Plantation owners now owed him money. He wanted to use the money he was owed from the shoes to pay off his debt to John.
