Have you seen Young's original description to the Royal Society in 1803? He did not do a "double slit" experiment as we would describe it today.
Thanks! This is helpful. I also found this webpage which discusses the difference between the single and double slit experiments as really just a matter of degree, with the interference pattern being much easier to see with two slits instead of one.
