John Kean wrote from Charleston to Susan Kean, his wife, address not included. He had been sick, but his landlady, Mrs. Broddie, was nursing him back to health. He was sharing a room with another man named John who was also sick. He asked Susan to ask Lawrence and Morris to send him money that was paid to his account. It appears the first part of the letter is missing.
John Kean (1755-1795)
