Knox, William (1756-1795), to Henry Knox


Correction [in brackets] to a few of the words in the following:

"You will probably laugh when you hear our Uniform is black turn’d up with red, if you do, so be it-it is exceeding by [SHOULD READ 'exceedingly'] neat & genteel & I in particular like it as I have not to buy a new boat [SHOUlD READ 'coat']. I have a certain black goat [SHOUlD READ 'coat'] that was presented to me by [Mr] Knox that answers the purpose very well.
