This is a legal document. The verso is labeled "General Discharge B. Corvaisier to John Kean." Bartholomew Corvaisier received a payment of 10,000 Mexican Dollars by John Kean, to eliminate any claims that Corvaisier had against John Kean, Edward Barnwell, and Robert Barnwell.
Other names included: Nathaniel Barnwell, Daniel Bourdeaux, Isaac Waight Jane Corvaisier.
Signed by Corvaisier in the presence of Thomas Tuder Tucker and Robert Barnwell.
This is very similar to two other legal documents of the same date.
John Kean (1755-1795)
