George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 19 March 1771]

19. At Court all day. In the Afternoon came home, and found Majr. Jenefir, Mr. Boucher, & Jacky Custis here.

Jacky and his tutor had come at Robert Fairfax’s request to see him before he returned to England. Fairfax shared Boucher’s opinion that Jacky should tour Europe, and he had invited him to vacation at Leeds Castle during his stay abroad. The matter was probably discussed over dinner at Belvoir two days later, but still no definite decision was made about it (GW to Jonathan Boucher, 3 Feb. 1771, CSmH).
