William Stephens wrote from Savannah to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort, SC. He wrote to congratulate Kean on his new appointment. He said he thought he would do well and that he and Susan Kean would benefit from being closer to their family up north. He also updated him on other political matters, Mr. Agnew was collector for Beaufort, Handley for Brunswick, and Seagrove for St. Mary's. A vote for $40,000 to assist Georgia with Native Americans was passed and a letter to Mr. McGillowing from George Washington was forwarded to Augusta on the same subject.
