    1. Shortly before marrying Dr. William Savage in 1767, Margaret Savage, a widow in her late sixties, signed over to Dr. Savage the property left her by her late husband, the Rev. Charles Green, valued at about £5,000. In return, Savage gave a trust bond for £5,000 to GW and Bryan Fairfax, signed by him and Thomson Mason, by which Savage obligated himself to pay his new wife an annuity of £100. As this letter reveals, Dr. Savage had been attempting to have the deed of trust revoked on the grounds that this was what Mrs. Savage wished, whereas Mrs. Savage was privately telling GW and Fairfax that this was not the case. For GW’s long-term involvement with the Savage affair, see Henry Lee and Daniel Payne to GW, 24 April 1767, n.1.
