George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 21 November 1797]

21. A little Snow in the morning with a very heavy sleet all day. Mer. from 36 to 48. A Mr. Lister introduced by Mr. Robt. Morris came here dined & returned.

Robert Morris wrote GW that Daniel Lister was “an English young Gentn.” on a tour of the United States and “could not return contentedly without seeing the Saviour of this country, Thus you see that your well earned Fame subjects your time & attention to be taxed by Strangers” (6 Nov. 1797, DLC:GW).
