William wrote to John, addressed to Philadelphia (New York crossed out). John's last letter was delivered by the brigg Grand Sachem. William got passage for the enslaved people 3 days after they arrived (no names or numbers of people included). William sent fruit trees and 4lbs of apples to Beaufort by Captain Minott. He explains a payment by Judge [John Faucheraud] Grimke to Mr. Ward, indents to cover services and supplies, and doesn't know if Congress will allow them for assumption (payments?). William expected to hear from Mr. Barnwell about an indigo sale.
