George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 10 October 1769]

10. Went to Captn. Poseys to run the Lines of the Land he bought of Mr. Marshall. Dined there.

This land was the small strip on the Potomac involved in John West, Jr.’s suit against Posey. GW’s survey of this day, made “at the particular request of Captn. Posey,” differed slightly from the one West and Alexander had made earlier (the dated survey is at ViMtvL).
