-George on the other hand, struggled with his education due to his father's death so he schooled himself in the gentlemanly arts by copying the 110 maxims of the Rules of Civility. He also tried to receive the rest of his education at England's Appleby School but that wasn't quite successful for him so then he attended Westmoreland Country, a school close to his home and excelled in Mathematics but he did not learn Greek, Latin, or a foreign language.
