A "Commerce Clause" also did not exist at this early time in American history, because it would have been unthinkable to give the federal government unrestricted authority over such things as, say, national health insurance.
It most certainly did exist. Of course back then, it was a limiting power, not an all encompassing one.

I read GW’s biography earlier this year. He, along with most other Virginia planters, was in debt up to the frills of his shirt till the day he died. One reason was his unwillingness to break up slave families through sales of individual servants.

(Just my opinions)
Not only did Washington free his slaves, Washington’s will provided for training the younger slaves in useful skills, and created a fund for old age pensions for the older ones.

I don’t recall George having secret off shore bank accounts where he hid kickbacks.
