George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 10 May 1785]

Tuesday 10th. Mercury at 62 in the Morning—[ ] at Noon and 60 at Night. Wind pretty fresh all day from So. East—raw, cold, & not much unlike rain.

Quitted fishing at the ferry landing, as I had done at the House landing on Saturday last.

Began to weed a yard for Brick making at home.

Rid into the Neck. Found my Wheat there tolerably promising.

General Moylan returned before dinner. Doctr. Jenifer & his wife came here to dinner & stayed all Night. A Mr. Stephens from the red stone Settlement came in the afternoon & remained all Night.

Mr. Stephens is possibly Dennis Stephens, who had built the mill on GW’s Pennsylvania land.
