Late in 1753 Robert Dinwiddle, His Majesty's Lieutenant-Governor of Virginia, appointed the young George Washington to a delicate assignment on the northwestern frontier of the colony. His mission was double-barreled: to deliver Dinwiddies message to the French commander-a curt letter telling him to get out of British Territory-and to bargain for the support of the Indian leaders. The pamphet is one of the rarest publications in American History. Only eight copies of the original edition printed on the press of William Hunter in Williamsburg still exist of this stirring journal kept by young Major George Washington on his mission in 1753-1754 to warn the French against encroaching on British territory. From one of these copies owned by Colonial Williamsburg, this facsimile hardcover edition has been printed. 42 pp.; 1 black-and-white drawing; map; 5 x 7
