George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 30 October 1769]

30. Set out on my Journey to Williamsburg & reached Colo. Henry Lees to a Late Dinner.

Governor Botetourt had summoned the burgesses to a new session beginning 7 Nov. On this trip GW took Mrs. Washington and Patsy with him, traveling in a handsome green chariot trimmed with gold that had arrived from England some time during the past 12 months (invoice of goods shipped to GW, Sept. 1768, DLC:GW).
