[Diary entry: 6 October 1787]

Saturday 6th. Thermometer at 56 in the Morning—72 at Noon & 70 at Night. Clear all day with the Wind at South.

Rid to the Plantations at the Ferry, Frenchs, Dogue run, and Muddy hole.

At the first, having got out all the Wheat & Rye, the fodder next claimed attention and was accordingly set about.

Colo. McCarty & his wife; Mrs. Craik and her daughters Mrs. Jenifer & Mariamne; and Mrs. Ann Jenifer came here to dinner & returned afterwards. Towards evening Mr. & Mrs. Powell of Philadelphia came in.

mrs. craik: In the original Philadelphia journal GW had written “Mrs. Craik & Sally & two Mrs. Jenifers came.” Sally was, of course, Mrs. Sarah Craik Jenifer. He made the correction when copying the entry into the final version.
