An extensive traveller and witty friend of the writer sweepingly declares that "Guide-books contain everything which one does not wish to know."
With the hope that the brevity of the following pages will save this little Guide from even the suspicion of conveying undesirable information, the possessor is respectfully invited to peruse it first, and render judgment afterwards.
It is simply designed as a practical assistant to the visitor to Mount Vernon, all merely patriotic or poetic sentimentality being purposely avoided.
