John Wereat wrote to an unknown person, addressed to Philadelphia, PA. He explained a court case involving himself and the unknown individual the letter was sent to in Georgia. There are few details included other than how John was reluctant to go on with the suit but felt as though he had no other option. No exact location is included but mentioned toward the end of the letter that he had "other business in this city", so he may had also been in Philadelphia like the recipient.
