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 (General Ledger A description begins General Ledger A, 1750–1772. Library of Congress, George Washington Papers, Series 5, Financial Papers. description ends , folio 274).
