|The Henry Knox Papers  January-June 1804
|Amelia Whitcomb to Henry Knox begging that her family be allowed to stay on their farm in the Waldo patent
|20 June 1804
|Whitcomb, Amelia (fl. 1804)
|Writes that she and her family live on a farm in the Waldo patent, and may have to move. Pleads that they be allowed to stay, and hopes Knox will "shew lenity to my unfortunate Husband whose natural diffidence will prevent his pleading his own Case." Adds that the only thing she can do is plead for the welfare of her family, and hopes that Knox, as well as his wife, will take mercy on them.
