[Diary entry: 20 September 1773]

20. I went up to Court, & returnd in the Afternoon. Colo. Mason, & Mr. Fendal came with me.

The Fairfax court met only one day this month, and GW’s name does not appear on the list of attending justices. George Mason, who returned from Alexandria with him, had several cases that were being heard at this meeting (Fairfax County Order Book for 1772–74, 263–68, Vi Microfilm).
