William Stephens wrote to an unknown person, unaddressed. Stephens wrote about rice being shipped by the sloop Friendship. He suggested the rice be sold in New York because of the scarcity of money in Savannah. Three companies of troops from New York left for St. Mary's, Georgia to the relief of settlers there, but the governor felt that such was unnecessary because "the Indians, are so peaceably welcomed." People included: Capt. Barnham, governor [of Georgia], President of the United States. Places included: New York, St. Mary's, GA.
