Robert Barnwell wrote from Beaufort, South Carolina to John Kean, unaddressed. Barnwell informed Kean his last year's crops must have been below his mode rate calculations and the season had been unfavorable. Instructed Kean to return to South Carolina because his interest demanded it. Worried that his negligence in responding to Kean’s letters had induced his silence. Miss Middleton married Thomas Fuller and Miss Ann Devraux married De Brown. Barnwell’s brother Nathaniel directed him to inform Kean that he advertised Kean’s lands on the Neck according to his direction but had no applications. Asked Kean to place a value on other lands.
