Summary of Content: References Knox’s letter of 9 October (GLC02437.05189). Thanks him for looking into the housing market in Philadelphia, and agrees with him that ”the extravagant high rents will produce a sufficient number of Houses to accomodate all who wish them, on moderate terms.” As he has no business to attend to, will visit Philadelphia in the spring. Plans to either hire, purchase, or build a home. Notes that he is willing to consider Mr. Simmons’s house if they can agree on a price. Explains other options in Philadelphia and goes on to lament the high taxes in Boston. Relates that it is too late for him to get hired as a bank director, but vacancies might open next year.
