This is the fourth day that we have been expecting the carriage and it has not yet arrived nor have we heard from you by post, and, although the delay has been a very seasonable one, as I will convince you presently, still we cannot help feeling a little uneasy at your misterious silence; we...

Thomas Mann Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 5 June 1820

Your very acceptable favor of the 2d ult. has lain long unanswered from many causes, which I omitt to enumerate from my confidence in the stability of your friendly sentiments, and the consciousness of a permanent reciprocation of them in myself. General Lallemands proposals to publish his...

Martha B. Baker to Martha B. Eppes, 7 June [1820?]

You know not, how your letter has revived my spirits, every allowance is made by me, & am charitable in all I think, about you, for never have I seased to love & think of you, and as I knew full well your sufferings I have never blamed you for not writing, tho felt sorry I did not hear...

Your favor of the 3d reached me last evening I have heard nothing of those articles that you were so kind as to order to be sent to me, perhaps there might not have been an opportunity to send them, there seems a difficulty attending geting any thing from Richmond Mr James wrote Your Brother that...

Extract from Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 30 June 1820 [Quote]

I know no error more consuming to an estate than that of stocking farms with men almost exclusively. I consider a woman who brings a child every two years as more profitable than the best man of the farm. what she produces is an addition to the capital, while his labors disappear in mere...

Lewis Livingston to Nicholas P. Trist, 1 July 1820

I have just received your two letters of the 25 and 28th ulto and I am sorry to find there is so little hope of seeing you in our neighbourood. Since you are so strict a disciplinarian and have put it all upon the score of duty I can not venture to say another word upon the subject but will...

the examination is over, & was as you may suppose, neither splendid nor brilliant, yet mr Stack seems determined to put it in the papers, but I hope he will confine himself to the central gazette, whose the circulation of which is limited to a very narrow compass, & perhaps, will never...

Thomas Ragland to Nicholas P. Trist, 15 July 1820

I have omited to write to you for some time, because indeed I am so much of a recluse here as rarely to see the least thing that could afford you any entertainment. This is not the case with you at West Point, there, not a day passes but something transpires which would afford ample matter to...

Thomas Mann Randolph to Joseph C. Cabell, 20 July 1820

I replied to your favor of the 1st ult. on the day I received it, the 5th but my answer having by accident remained on my table untill another day I destroyed it, from the great value I allways set upon your opinion, as I had indulged too much in invective against particular persons, by whom I...

Lewis Livingston to Nicholas P. Trist, 22 July 1820

I owe you an apology for not having answered your letter from West point at an earlier date, but believe I can not more effectually exculpate myself than by simply stating one fact: that it is say that the letter reached me at the very moment I was embarking for Long Branch and that during my...

I have made up my mind to write to Father by the next mail, for 450 $ the sum which I will require to settle my affairs here and take me to Philadelphia. Although my debts at present amount to but a trifle, by the time that I will be ready to set off, which will be in the course of 3 or 4 months...

Elizabeth Trist to Nicholas P. Trist, 27 July 1820

Altho I had detirmined to write to no one till I received replys to my letters, I can not resist the impulse of my heart to address my beloved Grand Son and to assure him of my affectionate solicitude for his health and happiness I am not uneasy at your long silence as I attribute it to your...

Extract from Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 29 July 1820 [Quote]

One of the propositions in your letter of the 8th inst. is so exactly suited to my situation and feelings on the subject of the negroes for Francis, that I cannot hesitate a moment to accede to it. it is that which proposes to loan me the stock you mean to lay out in this way, to be paid for two...
