1“Bell” was probably Josias Beall of Prince George’s County, Md., for whom GW’s slave carpenters did a large amount of work and whose name at this time GW always spelled “Bell.” See Ledger A description begins Manuscript Ledger Book 1, 1750-72, in George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. description ends , 121.

2This was interest on the £100 bond of indebtedness that Robert Alexander paid off in 1762. See Cash Accounts, 1762, n.9.

4Samuel Moxley used GW’s blacksmith from as early as 1761 through 1766. During these years GW received from him in exchange wheat, Indian corn, and cattle. See Ledger A description begins Manuscript Ledger Book 1, 1750-72, in George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. description ends , 54.

5GW’s ledger shows him owing Gerrard Bowling (Garrard Bolling) of Fairfax County £1.9.3 for inspecting a total of eleven hogsheads of tobacco while prizing three in 1762 and 1763. On the other side of the ledger in his account with Bowling, GW shows that on 16 Mar. 1763 he paid Bowling £1.10 (Ledger A description begins Manuscript Ledger Book 1, 1750-72, in George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. description ends , 153).
