George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 18 July 1795]

18. Breakfasted in Baltim[or]e—dined & lodged at Spurriers where my sick horse died.

spurriers: This is probably the same tavern that GW on 21 Sept. 1787 had called “the Widow Balls (formerly Spurriers).” Either Spurrier had again taken over as proprietor or the tavern was still known by his name.
