This was Lear's diary entry: "About ten o'clk, Saturday December 14, 1799, Washington made several attempts to speak to me before he could effect it, at length he said, -- 'I am just going. Have me decently buried; and do not let my body be put into the Vault in less than two days after I am dead.' I bowed assent. He then looked at me again and said, 'Do you understand me?' I replied 'Yes.' 'Tis well' said he."
