Juliana Annesley (Maxwell) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 20 April 1786

Allow me my Dear Girl to profit of the promise you have made me to correspond with me, and as I cannot bear the least shadow of formality between friends, I shall thro’ the whole of this letter endeavour to put away the remembrance of its being the first letter; I hope you will follow my example....

Juliana Annesley (Maxwell) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 27 April 1786

I am very angry with my Dear Jeffy for not having yet answered my Letter and am resolved to be revenged by not speaking to you for 100 years to come if I do not hear from you this very day I like punctual correspondants, therefore in your letter tell me if you can answer me to all my notes—I am...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

I thought My Dr Jefferson we had made an agreement to write to each other once every week—just before I left London I wrote you a letter of 5 pages, (therefore you can not complain of its shortness) & have not received any answer whatsoever—I have puzzled my brain for some days past to find...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

Abscence my Dr Jef certainly enhances the value of those we love & makes us more anxious for their welfare—since I left Paris I do not remember anything to have afforded me so much real satisfaction as your last letter—I began to be very uneasy at your long silence fearing it might be...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

Il mia cara sorella spero che portate béne—surprised really astonished at my own cleverness, you must give me credit my Dr Jef for half a hundred good things I could have said, or more properly speaking wrote in this letter, had I not treasured up all the wit I am mistress of, in one corner of my...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

I am really quite ashamed to think that I have received your letter above ten days & have not as yet made you the least answer, but I rely on your goodness for pardon, I assure you my silence did not proceed from neglect; but from want of time & paresse. I cannot be so charitable as you,...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

I cannot let pass this opportunity my Dr Jef without just writing you a few lines to hope you are well as I am at present—n’est pas une phraze bien tournée—spirituelle surtout—I recollect you would not believe that now & then people advertize for a wife, to prove the veracity of—I can’t get...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 6 May [1788]

I have taken the liberty of sending you my name & place of abode, imagining they might be both necessary, before you could fulfil the promise you made me some time ago to writing me a letter in French of six pages—as most probably you must have forgot both e’er this. Hoping you will excuse...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson Randolph, [19 May 1788]

O is it really true that my Dr Jefferson dictated the paragraph in my friend Botidoux’s letter—that when you had time, you might acknowledge the receipt of my last letters. I flatter myself still that you are not quite so indifferent to your friend as to send her such a message, were it not at...

Juliana Annesley (Maxwell) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

After a sick passage of 8 hours, I am at last with a heavy heart arrived at Dover, very much fatigued & low spirited; I set out early tomorrow morning on my route to London where I hope to arrive in the same evening. I staid 3 days with my Aunt at Tournay & embarked this morning at 12 o...

Bridget Hawkins Roper-Curzon to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1789]

The punctuality with which you have executed my little commissions, has a claim on my warmest acknowledgments—the cloak & etc you have sent me, is the most beautiful thing of the kind I ever recollect to have seen—I will trouble you to forward the enclosed to Mlle Bertrand, which contains a...

Bridget Hawkins Roper-Curzon to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1789]

Botidoux informs me My Dear Girl, that you have left Panthemont, I do not remember whether your partiality for the Convent was too great to admit of congratulatory, compts or not, there fore shall conceive your sentiments to be similar to my own & wish you joy de bien bon coeur. I hope the...

Bridget Hawkins Roper-Curzon to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1789]

I will not give you an opportunity of retaliating upon me, my Dear Jefferson and therefore answer your polite letter immediately—you again express a wish to execute my little commissions, if you will be—rather more punctual, I will trouble to give the enclosed to Mde Devillier, as I imagine her...

Elizabeth Tufton to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1789]

Your letter which I received by Mr Stone gave me the most sincere pleasure, and I am rejoiced to think I shall hear from you more frequently, as it will in some measure make amends from a seperation, the thoughts of which will ever give me pain, and I still am foolish enough to believe we shall...

Thomas Mann Randolph to Thomas Mann Randolph (1741–1793), April 1789

Several days have elapsed since I arrived here from my expedition to the mountains, but I have been so much indisposed that I could not with ease proceed immediately to Richmond. I am extremely impatient to set out for New-York where my time would be much more profitably spent, & wish if it...

Caroline Tufton (Barham) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 2 May 1789

We have been some time past in daily expectation of hearing from you, which indeed has prevented me from writing as we were afraid you had not received our letters, for though we had the satisfaction of knowing you arrived safely in America, yet we should have been much more happy, to have heard...

Bridget Hawkins Roper-Curzon to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 2 July 1789

I received your letter yesterday & tho’ I have very little time tonight I would not omit answering it for the world, least you should have a pretext for not sending me your address in Virginia, & thereby lay me under the necessity of putting a period to our correspondance; before I thank...

Caroline Tufton (Barham) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 7 Aug. 1789]

We are in such confusion ever since nine ’clock this morning, when the Duke decided to go to England tomorrow, which we should have been otherwise glad of, if we had not left you at Paris; the idea of parting with you hurts us more than we can describe, but as we have a great deal to do, we think...

Caroline Tufton (Barham) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 13 Aug 1789

We arrived here Wednesday night having spent two days at Sir Horace Mann’s near Canterbury, where there was a Cricket Match, the house quite full of company, and very few people we knew, added to being very much tired with our journey, made us very glad to get away, I am sure if you had been...

Caroline Tufton (Barham) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 2 Sept 1789

It is impossible for me to discribe, how happy I feel at hearing from you, and what ever pleasure I have felt at seeing my friends in England, it has not been equal to the pain of a seperation from you, which if not eternal, is so distant, as to afford me very little hope, but I will no longer...

Elizabeth Tufton to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 18 Sept. [1789]

My dear Miss Jefferson I hope will not accuse me of neglect in not having thanked her for her letter & the canes which she has been so good as to send me. the truth is we have been in the country, where there was nothing happenned to entertain me sufficiently to write a very dull answer in...
