  I was visiting Mount Vernon on a warm summer morning about 1985. I was with a couple of English cousins, ascending the stairway up to the second floor where the family bedrooms are located. We were quietly chatting as the line slowly moved upstairs. Part way up I had the impression of an unseen person arms outstretched trying to block the way up, conveying a verbal message of ''how dare you transgress the general's quarters?'' In doing some further
    research, I found that George Washington had a very loyal man servant, a slave named Will or Billy Lee who served Washington in that capacity from 1768
through the war and the presidency. I can imagine such a loyal servant being displeased at having people with English accents accessing the private quarters of Washington who preferred being addressed as ''General Washington'' in his later years.
