1. Beginning in 1764 and for a number of years afterwards, William Carlin of Alexandria made clothes for GW and his ward and for some of their servants.
2. In late 1764 (see GW to Carlyle & Adam, 15 Feb. 1767; Cash Accounts, October 1764, n.8), GW hired his cousin Lund Washington (1737–1796) to become manager of his Mount Vernon farms. He continued in this position during GW’s absence of more than eight years during the Revolutionary War.
