William Wilkie wrote from Charleston to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort, SC. He hoped John received his previous letters and described how they were sent. James, an enslaved man, brought over the 10 horses and mares John wanted to sell. William said he enclosed the receipts for all except two that he would try again to sell Wednesday. He also enclosed a certificate for the Bank of New York that said Abram and Wilcox had deposited $300 for John Grives. John Grives endorsed it and when presented at the bank the money should be paid immediately.
