That would be lovely George thank you!
After visiting outside of America temporarily, Washington caught smallpox. Luckily he did survive. Although he would now have permanent facial scars for the rest of his life.
How are you doing today George?
George had an interest in mathematics. He was more of a shy person, but was smart when was needed. Washington's half brother Lawrence took a good look after him and gave him a good upbringing.
When Washington was in his teens, he mastered growing tobacco, stock raising and surveying.
As George became older he continued his surveying interests and farmed a lot. He was also intrigued in being part of politics and what was going on in states.
