[Address unknown]
April 1859
"Of this building Mr. Watson, the Annalist thus writes:_[M S]_ 'It was the residence of Clarkson (city Mayor) now altered on the bank end. It was the office of Thomas Jefferson, then Secretary of State, and Randolph, attorney Genl. (both in the fever of 1793). It was still later the residence of John J. Watson [the annalist] while cashier; and there, in the front second story chamber, (North end) he wrote out in one summer his annals of Philadelphia: rising at four [o'clock] and ending at eight [o'clock], A.M.'"
