Wanted to visit Knox last Sunday but received letters from France about the death of several friends, including her sister. Says she was not up to seeing him after receiving the news. Complains that she would like to complete their business, but Henry Jackson "is so much ingaged in the public bilding that he do not know what he is about." Requests that Knox speaks to Jackson on her behalf. Reports she is leaving tomorrow. Place written assumed from content.
