Two things I learned today

The first thing I learned is that the District of Columbia Archives holds the original wills of George Washington and Frederick Douglass.   (See the Secretary's FY 2008 annual report for more information.)   The other thing I learned is that
Mayor’s Memoranda are issued by the Mayor or agencies under the authority of the Mayor to direct the application or implementation of a policy, announce an action or event, provide guidance or clarify a previously stated policy or position.

The memoranda are found at the bottom of the page with the Mayor's Orders.   Didn't find much of interest, but nonetheless an interesting find.
