Title Henry Jackson to Henry Knox on matters relating to family, friends and government appointments
Date 19 July 1789
Author Jackson, Henry (1747-1809)  
Recipient Knox, Henry  
Document Type Correspondence
Content Description Has received Knox's recent letters and is happy to hear that Knox's son's health is improving. Discusses the best way to send letters to Knox now that new rules are in place. Describes the recent "Commencement at Cambridge" (possibly referring to Harvard University), in which the Governor appeared. Has enclosed some newspapers. Writes that soon "the Officers for the Collection of the Revenue will be appointed," and he is "really anxious" because so many people are applying for those positions. Mentions that their Wednesday evening club is at an end, as several members have moved out to the country, but that all their friends send their love to him and to Mrs. Knox. Hopes to hear by the next post that Washington (likely Knox's son George Washington Knox, mentioned above) is out of all danger.
