George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 6 June 1768]

6. Rid to Muddy hole and the Mill, & met with Doctr. Rumney upon my Return who dined here.

While Rumney was at Mount Vernon, he gave Patsy Custis “a large Julep,” probably a syrupy, nonalcoholic drink intended to soothe her nerves (receipt from William Rumney, 18 Feb. 1769, ViHi: Custis Papers).

GW today paid £15 for a horse for Jacky Custis (ledger a description begins Manuscript Ledger Book 1, 1750-72, in George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. description ends , 274).
