George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 13 August 1786]

Sunday 13th. Mercury at 69 in the Morning—70 at Noon and 69 at Night.

Day lowering with the wind at East—now and then a little sprinkle of rain but not enough to wet the roots of any thing.

Mr. Shaw quitted this family to day.

Colo. Humphreys, Geo. Washington & wife went to Church at Alexandria to day & dined with Mr. Fendall. The first remained there all Night.

William Shaw resigned to go to the West Indies (see entries for 2 July 1785 and 25 Aug. 1786).
