William wrote to John Kean, no address, but located in Philadelphia, PA. William updates John about a verdict against him by Mr. Wereat. There was a miscalculation of interest and the case must go to trial again in February. William is working with Livingston and Mr. Barnwell to defend John. William was threatened by Mr. S (illegible) and Dr. Chamings. He also mentions Mr. Begans property sold, there are very few banknotes in this part of the country, and Tom Mills is on his way to Philadelphia, PA.
