Content Description References Knox's letters of 8 and 13 November. Claims his life is "deranged" since "the change in my situation." This is in reference to Jackson selling his house and furniture. Hopes to have his papers put in order soon. Says Henry Jackson Knox left for Hingham on 21 November. Writes, "your brother is not right - and in my opinion will never be capable of transacting any business for you or himself - he confines himself to his chamber for five or six days at a time without seeing any one of the family. this he frequently does - when I call on him he complains that his head and stomach is not in order ... he has a good heart and a very cleaver [sic] fellow - but from some cause or other he is a lost young man." Reports that he sent Colonel Tyler 100 dollars. Encloses letters from: Tyler, [Thomas] Vose, and Madame de Leval. None are included here.
