William Wilkie wrote from Charleston to John Kean, addressed to New York, NY. He received John's letter along with a check sent from William Stephens that was previously sold by John Grive. He enclosed a bill for $150 from Mr. Crafts, Murray, Mumford, and Bowen as well as a current statement of account. Captain Blake would like a bill of sale for the enslaved man he bought from John. This is most likely a man named Sancho that had been mentioned in previous letters. He received several items from the Britannia and sent them to Beaufort.
