I then told him that 7Vrii- dtut Waihiuntun was in the chariot He again refused and said that he had it' good a right to the. road a George Washington had.' The simple reply of I Washington to this was, ' And so he had.' The postillion after n moment's wonder and u-toniilirnent nt the conde scension of the President of the.
