William Wilkie wrote from Charleston to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort, SC. Captain Keen had gotten back to him and if John agreed to his terms would transport the Kean Family and their furniture to New York. He was to be paid in good rice and would arrive October 1 or 2. He requested that the pilot at Beaufort look out for him as he had never been there and that the family be ready to depart when he arrived.
