William Stephens wrote from Savannah, Georgia, to John Kean in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Stephens informed Kean that he enclosed a bill of exchange for $428 remitted to him from Mr. Barnwell in part of the debt against the Estate of William Deveaux. Mr. Bevan will not give what Kean asked for Barbers Islands, suggested selling for £200. Wercat’s Counsel did not give him advice on Kean paying the amount of his demand. Stephens asked for news on John Jay.
