George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 28 September 1786]

Thursday 28th. Mercury at 69 in the Morning—81 at Noon and 79 at Night.

Calm, clear and warm; all day. Accompanied by Colo. Bassett, I rid to the Plantations at Muddy hole, Dogue run and Ferry. Employed in getting & securing Fodder at all of them.

Only one Ditcher at work in my Mill swamp—the other left it (at least discontinued work) on Tuesday last.
