|Correspondence; Non-governmental organization document
|Received Knox's most recent letter, and is glad to hear his daughter Julia has recovered completely from her illness. Relates that all the members of the Society of the Cincinnati in Boston were invited to dine aboard a ship, the Leopard, whose captain is also a Society member; also describes another feast aboard a boat, to which the Governor was invited. Describes a dinner the Cincinnati are throwing the following week. Mentions that "little Isaac" (likely Isaac Winslow, Jr.) recently returned from "the Eastward" (likely the Waldo patent lands) and is very happy with the job Captain Thomas Vose is doing as their agent. Comments that the recent appointment of Colonel [Alexander] Hamilton as Secretary of the Treasury pleases everyone in the Boston area and declares that Hamilton is a man of great ambition. Congratulates Knox on his reappointment to his old office. Adds that he may be in New York the following month, and sends his love to Mrs. Knox and their family.
