W. Stephens wrote from Savannah, Georgia to John Kean in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Stephens informed Kean that the letter would be handed to him by Mr. William Mills, a man of good connections and who possessed a decent property. He recently came of age and served a faithful apprenticeship to a House Carpenter. Mills wanted to spend time in the Northern states to learn architecture and mechanics. Stephens asks Kean to give him a friendly opportunity and permits him to recommend Mills to any architects that may be of his acquaintance.
