Date 26 July 1789
Author Knox, Henry (1750-1806)  
Recipient Lincoln, Benjamin  
Document Type Correspondence
Content Description Received General Lincoln's recent letter. Writes that "Mr. Lowells character has been placed before the President" but he does not know whether a "personal application" would be worthwhile; believes it would depend on Mr. Lowell's opinion. Adds that the House of Representatives will look at the federal bill tomorrow, which means that the President will not be ready to sign it until 10 August at least, so Mr. Lowell has time to decide. Also discusses a new bill for the collection of revenue.
