George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 13 March 1797]

13. Breakfasted at Spurriers & dined & lodged in Bladensburgh. Morning lowered but clear afterwards.

Spurrier’s was “much resorted, not because it is well kept but because there is no other; the lodging is bad—the eating tolerable ... better for lodging than eating. At Bladensburgh nine miles beyond a good house is kept by one Ross (sign of the Indian Queen)” (GW to Elizabeth Willing Powel, 26 Mar. 1797, ViMtvL).
