Jane wrote from Nantes, France, to her half-brother John Kean, addressed to Philadelphia, PA. Jane was sad to hear John is in poor health. The letter was delivered by Thomas Harris of London, who is moved to Philadelphia with his family. She included a letter to Mr. Bendist [not present] and asked John to deliver it to Mr. Bendist himself because it was of grave consequence.
