Monday October 10,1785

Genl and Mrs. Washington present their compliments to Colo and Mrs Blackburn; are much obliged to them for their kind invitation to the Wedding on Thursday. They would attend with pleasure, but for the indisposition of the latter; and the particular engagements of the former which confine him at home this week, and oblige him to attend the Board of Directors at Georgetown, the Great Falls, &c the beginning of next. The Genl and Mrs Washington will always be happy to see the young couple at Mount Vernon.
