Content Description References Knox's letters of 18 and 21 December. Says "your determination to make your brother work is of the first importance to you & him - and the only means in my opinion to drive of his gloom and the inactivity of his mind." Says Henry Jackson Knox spent a few nights with him last week. Heard from Henry's teacher that "he had conducted very well since his return from New York." Sarah Lyons Flucker asked for another 50 dollars, which he sent. That makes $200 since Knox was last in Boston. Says she appears to have a want of economy. Makes reference to the carpenters working on Knox's house in Maine. Wants to know if he has finalized the plans. Received a letter from Benjamin Walker which states he does not have a good understanding with Madame Laval. Sends his love to Cobb. Writes that a venison feast gave him a headache.
