George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 24 September 1787]

Monday 24th. After breakfast I rid to the Plantn. at the Ferry—Frenchs Dogue run, & Muddy hole. At the first the hands were getting out wheat & rye, and the plows putting in wheat in No. 6. At the next the Plows 4 were putting in Rye in No. [ ] and the other hands grubbing in the New Meadow. At Dogue run the Plows were covering wheat in No. [ ] and the other hands employed chiefly in grubbing the Swamp between the Meadows. At Muddy hole the plows were fallowing in No. [ ] for wheat—the rest gathering fodder.

In the afternoon Doctr. Mrs. Stuart & the girls returned to Abingdon.
