Hamet, General Washington’s slave

A notice from the Hartford, Connecticut Review  indicates that the only surviving slave of the General is living in the city of Middletown.  He is near one hundred years of age, draws a pension from the government for his service in the Revolutionary war.  He has a white wife and one child.  Among his “remembrances” of Washington is a lock of the General’s hair.  He converses in three or four languages besides his own native African tongue.
