George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 2 April 1772]

2. Dined and Spent the Evening at Mrs. Campbells.

On this day GW was appointed to a committee of three to consider a proposed amendment to the act regarding deer hunting and the control of hounds. Today also a report was submitted from the committee on Philip Hand’s claim to which GW had been appointed on 4 Mar. Hand’s petition, the committee found, was reasonable, and the house promptly approved giving him £6 for “his present Relief” and an annuity of £5 for life (JHB description begins H. R. McIlwaine and John Pendleton Kennedy, eds. Journals of the House of Burgesses of Virginia. 13 vols. Richmond, 1905–15. description ends , 1770–72, 290–91).
