Jacob Read wrote from Charleston to John Kean addressed to Beaufort, SC. He had arrived back, but left Mrs. Read behind and will return to get her in two months. He saw Philip Livingston, John's brother-in-law and he said that Sarah Ricketts had a son. He congratulated him on his new appointment. He received a letter sent via William Elliott, and wrote about money due on David Tubly's bond and the Sayre Estate.
