George Mason's Endorsement of William Buckland's Indenture (November 8, 1759)

8th. Novr. 1759
The within named William Buckland came into Virginia with my Brother Thomson Mason, who engaged him in London, & had a very good Character of him there; during the time he lived with me he had the entire Direction of the Carpenter's & Joiner's Work of a large House; & having behaved very faithf[ully in] my Service, I can with great Justice recommend him, to any Gentleman that may have Occasion [to] employ him, as an honest sober diligent Man, & I think a complete Master of the Carpenter's & Joiner's both in Theory & Practice.
G MASON
