 Washingtonia - George Washington Trivia

The following is an excerpt out of Tobais Lear's diary. It marks the dying words of George Washington:

At about 10 o'clock, he (Washington) made several attempts to speak to me; at length he said, "I am just going. Have me decently buried, and do not let my body be put into the vault in less than three days after I am dead." I bowed assent, for I could not speak. He then looked at me again, and said, "Do you understand me?" I replied, "Yes."

"Tis well," he said.
