George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 26 July 1785]

Tuesday 26th. Thermometer at 75 in the Morning—74 at Noon and 74 at Night.

Lowering day, with little drippings of Rain (not enough to lay the dust) through the day. Wind pretty brisk from the Southward.

With Mrs. Washington, Miss Bassett and the two Children I dined at Mr. Lund Washington’s.

On my return, found Mr. Will Shaw (whom I had engaged to live with me as a Book keeper, Secretary, &ca.) here.
