Description

Like most members of Virginia’s planter class, the Washingtons were Anglicans. It is not surprising, then, that this copy of the Book of Common Prayer is among the books that were associated with Martha Washington. According to the inscription on the front endpaper, Martha read in the book twice a day from 1789 through her death in 1802 (image courtesy of Mount Vernon Ladies' Association).
