"You have invariably through the most trying times maintained a constant friendship and attention to the cause of our country and its independence and freedom."
(George Washington to Samuel Fraunces)
Jamaican-born Samuel "Black Sam" Fraunces, owner of the Fraunces Tavern in New York City, was so highly regarded for his hospitality and patriotism that President Washington hired him as his steward in Philadelphia. The relationship went back to the Revolution when Fraunces often hosted Washington and his officers at the tavern. Despite his nickname, some believe him to have been white.
