William Wilkie wrote from Charleston to John Kean addressed to Beaufort, SC. He had written to John by Dr. Campbell and received his letter from Captain Saltus, but Saltus left before he finished his reply so he sent it by Mr. D. Adams of St. Helena instead. He was working on selling the rice and had received 2o pounds for him from Mr. Elliott. He had not yet found a purchaser for Sancho, an enslaved man, and planned to sell him and the horses at auction with John's approval.
