A eulogy in verse published shortly after the death of Washington in December 1799. Sheet lacks colophon; as the only known copy is held by the Virginia Historical Society, Hummel reported this title as a Virginia imprint and suggested a date of 1799; possibly issued outside Virginia and published after 1799, but reported here in conformance with Hummel.
