Alexander Chisolm wrote from Charleston to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort, SC. He wrote he knew nothing about Mr. Simons having given John's note to Mr. D. He said he would have paid the money but MR. D received it himself from S.B. Vanderhouh. He was sorry John did not receive his newspapers more regularly, but nothing could be done about it. Alexander would make out their account soon. His son, George, took a man name Sancho into the country and put him in a work house. Alexander retrieved him and paid his fee. He sent him home and had Mr. Fuller give him a passage. He hoped he would not fail in his promise of going home.
