GW was presumably still in Williamsburg after meeting with Va. Lt. Gov. Robert Dinwiddie. His general correspondence contained a memorandum of minutes from the Virginia Council’s meetings on 23 Feb., 27 April, and 18 July 1754, as well as a record of the daily pay for officers of the Virginia Regiment. The document showed that GW made twelve shillings and six pence per day.
A general return of the Virginia Regiment in Winchester, Va. marked the number of officers and soldiers fit for duty, those presently wounded, and those who were absent. The total number of men was just under 300.
