Date 8 December 1798
Author Knox, Henry (1750-1806)  
Document Type Correspondence
Content Description Apparently a bled-through copy of GLC02437.07203. Knox acknowledges that he "received your note respecting Francis Flucker and the explanations of his conduct by McEllery." Knox believes that Francis must change his behavior sincerely, but as for now he had "no moral sense: wrong and right are the same to him." He has run away from school, and until he gets his act together, Knox insists that Knox is not "responsible either for his conduct or expences."
