1Nicholas Whitehorn was a cooper living in Fairfax County. In balancing the account by this payment, GW noted in the ledger charges against himself for leather “Breeches for Breechy” and “Coachman Jack” and for Mrs. Brasenton’s “laying a Negro Peg.” The charges entered against Samuel Brasenton were mostly for work done by GW’s smith (Ledger A description begins Manuscript Ledger Book 1, 1750-72, in George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. description ends , 158).

2Jonas Green established the Maryland Gazette in Annapolis in 1745 and William Rind became his partner in 1758. In 1766 Rind established his Virginia Gazette in Williamsburg.
