John Prescott Knight letter to Richard Redgrave, 1873 March 12

 Item — Box: 2, Folder: 70
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

"My Dear Redgrave, It is evident you do not apprehend my position - you advise me to ask the president to allow me 'to withdraw the letter wholly' - There is no letter to withdraw that when you say the president ('partly read') - contains the distinct statement that I had not the slightest idea of tendering my resignation - and that I was able and willing to carry on my official duties. - It was written at the President's request for certain information.- Oh for a few minutes quiet conversation, it would conduce to telling all things right better thana quire of scribbling. Yours very truly, John P. Knight."
