Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 16 Jan. 1822

The enclosed was advertised in the central gazette where I saw it and sent for it. how long it had been in Charlottesville, or why it was not, either sent up, or forwarded to you, I can not conceive. Virginia desired me to ask when I wrote to you the name of the house in New Orleans to which any...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Virginia J. Randolph (Trist), 24 Feb. 1822

This beautiful weather and quiet hour makes me anxious once more to see you my dearest daughter at a home, recovering its charms with the fine season. every thing like comfort is so completely destroyed during the winter by the boys, that I had rather forego the pleasure of your society provided...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 7 Mar. 1822

I shall not apologise for keeping your letter 3 weeks by me unanswered, exact punctuality is not in my power, fortunately perhaps for my correspondants. as you did not receive the Louisville packet in due season I am almost sorry that my part of it at least had not gone to the bottom, for old...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 21 Mar. 1822

I beg My dear Nicholas that you will never again suffer your self to be made seriously uneasy by any possible length of silence from me. I am so notorious an offender in that way that if you did but know it, I deserve thanks and praises at your hands so far, for having treated you to so much...

Ellen W. Randolph (Coolidge) to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 3 Apr. 1822

I wish my dear mother that Papa may be as good as his word and send me the remittance without which I can neither pay my visit to Baltimore nor leave Washington; I am becoming quite impatient and very apprehensive lest his delays should disappoint me in this much wished for visit—and after having...

Virginia J. Randolph (Trist) to Nicholas P. Trist, 7 Apr. 1822

All your letters bring the same charge, of want of punctuality, against me, & I do not think that I deserve it in the least. you have written me seven letters, the two last of which I received together,—dated 24th of Feb. & 10th of March—while spending a week at Ashton from whence I...

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph (Trist), 27 Apr. [1822]

Our mother is in heaven! she expired in our arms last night before we could get any assistance.—I had not time to promise it to herself, but I have to her angelic spirit that now floats above over me, that you will shall be a mother to her poor little infants.—

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph (Trist), 5 May [1822]

as my dearest friend may suppose, I am in no great mood for writing: it is some relief however, to disburden my heart into that of my better half; especially as I know the sympathetic throb which will have beat in her bosom before this reaches her, and the anxiety she will feel to hear the tale...

Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Frederick W. Hatch, 12 May 1822 [Quote]

but it seems to be expected that there will be a concourse of one or two thousand others attending it, from all parts of the country; and experience has proved to me that my place is considered as among the curiosities of the neighborhood, and that it will probably be visited as such by most of...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Ann C. Morris, 27 May 1822

I received your last some weeks before I left Monticello, but I believe you are so much accustomed to my bad ways that you do no require a fresh apology for every letter—I have in vain tried to be punctual but bad habits are not so easily...

I take advantage of the first mail since the receipt of your letter dated the 5th of May, to answer it My Dear Nicholas, and assure you that you were right in supposing that the charge of little Mary would be as much my happiness as my duty. I already feel warmly interested in the poor little...

Virginia J. Randolph (Trist) to Nicholas P. Trist, 27 June 1822

The clouds and mist which have envelloped us continually, have I fear imparted some of their dullness to my brain, for in several attempts that I have made to write to you, My Dearest Nicholas, I have found it too barren to furnish one page of sense. I wish the sun would deign to show his blessed...
