Content Description Tuition bill for the summer session written and signed by Princeton College President and Declaration of Independence signer Jonathan Witherspoon. Henry Jackson Knox, Henry Knox's son, was charged £1.0.0 "To his Entry," £3.15.0 "To Tuition for the Summer Session," and £0.2.6 "To the School Servant." Reports that the rule of the school and college is to have the tuition paid in advance, so he has drawn on Knox for £4.17.6. Has no doubt "that you will pay it after being informed that the Grammar School belongs properly to me." The board and other expenses are to go to Dr. [Samuel Stanhope] Smith. Knox noted in the docket that the tuition was "paid."
