George Washington, Surveyor

From the Journal of My Journey Over the Mountainsby George Washington:

"THIS journal of George Washington...with literal exactness was begun...when he was but one month over sixteen years of age. It is his own daily record of observations during his first remunerated employment. His proficiency as a surveyor and his fortitude in encountering the hardships of the forest in this expedition were considering his age truly remarkable."
