William Wilkie wrote from Charleston to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort, SC. Since his last letter sent via Dr. Campbell, he heard back from Captain Tucker who declined to take the Keans to New York. He asked Captain Keen, but would not have an answer until Monday. He suspected he would decline as he was involved with trade between charleston and Georgetown. He received the order addressed to Mr. Chisolm, however, the man who it was from's rice had not sold and the order could not be paid until it was. He would write again by Mr. Elliott after he heard from Keen.
