[29, 30 September 1756]
Winchester: Wednesday 29th September, 1756.
Winchester: Thursday 30th September, 1756.
GW left Winchester for Augusta County on 29 Sept. 1756 and did not return until 22 October. As was the case during his absence in September, the orders issued at Winchester and entered in GW’s letter book until 10 Oct. were given presumably by the aide-de-camp George Mercer. Mercer left Winchester on 10 Oct. to go to Williamsburg, and no further orders appear in GW’s letter book until 24 Oct. after GW’s return to Winchester.
