GW at Mount Vernon. He again rode out “to see the Sick”--presumably among his slaves--and also went fox hunting. His hunt found nothing.
Rev. Andrew Morton wrote GW from neighboring Belvoir that he was unable to get a bond executed. The bond was meant to be given to GW in order to lease George William Fairfax’s Belvoir property.
