Wikipedia writes:"Governor Dinwiddie chose Major Washington, then 21 years old, for the
trek into the Ohio Country to assess the French military situation, and
to deliver the British demands
He was a good choice despite his youth because he was familiar with the
frontier from survey work, had good health, and both government and
Ohio Company leaders trusted Washington."This sheet is undated. It matches description of item dated 1837 in collection of Library of Congress and the paper is of roughly that era. I do not see anything even remotely similar offered for sale.
