Friday May 16th. Still Cool and Windy—my People yet continuing at Muddy hole. My Brother Jno. left this and I got Nations Estate Appraisd by Messrs. McCarty Barry & Triplet—as follows viz.
|One old Gun & lock||7.6|
|1 Small Bell||2.6|
|A Small parcel of Lea[the]r||1|
Nations’s estate still owed GW £1 11s. 1d., but GW wrote off that balance as “given to his Widow” (LEDGER A description begins Manuscript Ledger Book 1, 1750-72, in George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. description ends , 69). Barry is probably John Barry (d. 1775), the clerk of Pohick Church, an original trustee of the town of Colchester, and a neighbor of Daniel McCarty.
