Leslie the Laundress

The 1st Virginia Regiment had an event at Mt. Vernon two weeks ago for the Craft Faire they have every fall. I was the laundress and Gail Davis took two great pictures of me that I just have to share.

Here is me carrying water buckets with the yoke.

And here is me talking to the public. I love my bonnet and the new blue linen gown. The bonnet is one of the few things that I did not make myself.

Thanks Gail, you make me look great in 18th Century garb.
