Oct.16- Took the new electric cars to Mt. Vernon. Being Sunday they stopped at Little Hunting Creek. Potomac clays and sands were visible in several of the cuts on the way down. There is a deep cut half a mile north of the gate into the grounds, and here there is no Potomac, but there are 5 or 6 feet of marine deposits, Chesapeake clays above and apparently Pamunkey Greensand below.
