John Kean wrote to Reverend James Carmakau, addressed to Princeton. John wrote about history and how seemingly small or insignificant moments can cause the most magnificent or disastrous events. He discussed events such as the Dark Ages, priesthood, and the Great Wall of China. It is possible that this was written for one of Kean's classes at Princeton College.
