Title An article of Francis Waldo's will
Date 4 August 1793
Author Knox, Henry (1750-1806)  
Document Type Legal document; Land transaction document
Content Description Document pertains to issues regarding the division of the estate once belonging to Francis Waldo. Knox hopes to secure the portion of the Waldo patent left to Hannah Harwood. Believes he is entitled to it because Harwood once deprived Lucy Knox of over four thousand dollars that she was meant to inherit from Francis Waldo, when Harwood lost the money as a debt. This discussion is related to Knox's desire to buy the Winslow family's share of the Waldo patent. Contains a transcription of part of Francis Waldo's will, stating that over two thousand dollars be divided among the children of his sister upon his death.
