|The Henry Knox Papers  January-March 1795
|Henry Jackson Knox to Henry Knox discussing family and federalism
|4 March 1795
|Knox, Henry Jackson (1780-1832)
|Expresses disappointment at not hearing from home for some time, even though he has sent several letters himself. Notes he would have written sooner but he has been expecting a visit from Knox any day. He has decided to go ahead and write since it looks like Knox will not be visiting until May. Discusses interactions with friends and sends his love to the rest of the family. Say the people of this town "are in general, good federalists, for they celebrated the day appointed by the President for a public thanksgiving..." Complains of his mother (Lucy Knox) forgetting his letters to her and wishes she would "show a generous mind or a thankful heart."
