Nelly Custis Bedroom

Nelly Custis, Martha Washington's granddaughter, was raised at Mount Vernon by the Washingtons, and she and her husband also lived at Mount Vernon during the first two years of their marriage. The crib was given to Nelly by Martha Washington, for Nelly's first child, who was born at Mount Vernon in 1799.Via swap-bot: Quotecard Postcard #36, thanks to warholastoria (The world is too dangerous for anything but the truth and too small for anything but love.
