Thomas Willing wrote to John Kean, unaddressed. Glad to find John Kean so well that he was able to pick up his pen and compose a letter. Congratulated him on the account of the Treaty that was said to be concluded with Great Britain, likely the Jay Treaty. The business of the election for the officers was spoken of at the board. They were at no loss for Baltimore but as for the others, they were left in the dark, especially for Charleston. Would keep in mind the gentleman’s name John Kean gave him and asked for Kean’s advice on which three should be left out. Enclosed a letter from the Secretary [Edmund Randolph]. Hoped to see John Kean again once he recovered.
