[Diary entry: 11 March 1797]

11. Snowing from day light until 10 Oclock—in the Afternoon a little rain. Breakfasted at Susquehanna—dined & lodged at Hartford.

“At the Ferry, on both sides, are good Taverns: Mrs. Rogers’ on the East, & Mr. Barney’s on the West. From thence to Hartford (commonly called Bushtown) twelve miles from the ferry, a good house used to be kept but ... it was to be sold the Wednesday after we passed it” (GW to Elizabeth Willing Powel, 26 Mar. 1797, ViMtvL). GW stopped at both Mrs. Rodgers’s and Barney’s on this day (GW’s Cash Memoranda, 29 Sept. 1794–17 Aug. 1797, RPJCB).
