Recently transcriber Nsalomone brought us a document in the hand of General Knox. Knox writes to inform that Mr. Hamilton has been taken ill and is stuck in bed. Although he is pleased to report that Mr. Hamilton’s illness seems not to resemble a more serious (but unnamed) illness that is currently circulating, Knox appears concerned about Hamilton’s fever. To add to the concern, Hamilton’s doctor believes it extremely dangerous for Hamilton to leave his bed; consequently, Hamilton will be unable to attend to the President.
