John Kean wrote from an unknown location to Susan Kean in Hanover Square, NY. He had been sailing for multiple days and informed her of the rather fortunate weather while on the water and how a young man from Georgia and another from South Carolina were also accompanying him on board. Additionally he mentioned that Andrew forgot to pack his pistols. This item is not dated.
