[Samuel] Hugh's _____, (body?)- [did he recover his property?], Aug. 10, 1812.- Quite possible, since this book went through the War of 1812- Inscription on 1st rear blank- "Thomas Truxton (crossed out) again Thomas Truxton (again crossed out) and Alexander Truman (partly crossed out)...for value received, payment received."- Truxton being of course future Admiral Thomas Truxton (http://bing.search.sympatico.ca/?q=thomas%20truxton&mkt=en-ca&setLang=en-CA) but, who was a privateer during the War of 1812. Quite possible a debt Mahurin occured, but more likely a debt Truxton had occured and the debt was crossed out by Mahurin. Fascinating! Also- It was resolved on Dec 24, 1799 to erect a marble statue to Washington and under it interre his body (page 208-210)....and......"...that the President of the United States be requested to direct a copy of these resolutions to be transmitted to Mrs. Washington........"- Now, this copy has written in ink on front cover...."Proceedings of the Sixth Congress of the United States at............[some words are extremely difficult to make out] at bottom very faintly a signature. (Looks like John ????) and , on rear cover, quite plainly "----? [Dedicated to] Gen. George Washington, the Father of Our Country."- Fep is partially adhered to inner front cover pastedown, but has possibilities of being lifted by careful methods. Clearly, a 200th anniversary piece of Americana from 1812 and on the death of Washington and the 6th Congress.
