Martha Jefferson Randolph to Ann C. Morris, 6 Sep. 1829

I have received two letters from you dear Sister since I wrote last and although very closely employed yet the art of arranging my business so as to leave me most time, I never possessed and fear never shall, hence a great loss of that most precious comodity, and consequent neglect of many duties...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 16 Oct. 1829

It was so late monday evening when I received your letter that it was impossible to answer it by that mail. but Jefferson wrote to Col Peyton by the next to forward 100$ and I intended writing by the same to you to let you know what I had done; but was detained by company till too late which was...

I hope you have not been made uneasy my dear sister, by not hearing from us as often as usual, I did intend to have written a week ago but was constantly busy & for nearly a week past I have been paying leave taking visits to all my friends and acquaintances in the neighbourhood. tuesday we...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 26 Oct. 1829

Our journey has been or rather will be delayed one day at Jefferson’s desire. he was going to Nelson court from which he did not expect to return till tuesday evening, and he wished particularly to be here when we set off. of course we shall not get off go till wednesday when we shall go to Col....

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 1 Nov. 1829

I scarcely know where to direct this letter, my dear Virginia, so uncertain am I as to the movements of my family. I should feel uneasy at not hearing from you, did I not know that in the bustle of a removal there is little time for writing. Mama, I hope, is in Washington; the 16 of October, here...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Thomas Jefferson Randolph, 7 Feb. 1830

I have been very remiss in not answering sooner, your very welcome letter, which arrived safe with it’s valuable enclosure. I am greatly obliged by the exertions you made to procure the money for me. it is of a piece with your whole conduct to me, My dear Son. the first equipment occasioned a...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to James Madison, 20 Mar. 1830

The next number of the North American Review will contain the article on my grandfather’s correspondence, which I now take the liberty to send you, in a pamphlet form. It is written by Mr Ritchie, a son-in-law of Mr Otis, and the particular friend of Mr Coolidge, and with a degree of candour and...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Ann C. Morris, 4 Apr. 1830

I have so long ceased to be surprised at anything William does, or rather at any want of judgement in him, that even his singular letter to you excited no feeling of that sort. he does what logicians call “begging the question” that is he takes that for granted, which remains to be proved. it is...

Joseph Coolidge to Nicholas P. Trist, 2 May 1830

a letter from Ellen recd last night speaks of the possibility of her remaining in washington until an answer to it could arrive from me; at the same time that it intimates she may decide to return to Boston without delay; in which case the present would not find her, and might be retd to her,...

Cornelia J. Randolph to Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge, 30 May 1830

As I have prevented Virginia from writing, Dear Sister, I must write to you myself in spite of the drowsy & stupid feelings which oppress me mama will I believe write very soon to Mrs Coolidge; she has been staying with Mrs H. Smith in the country & was there when Mrs C.s letter arrived;...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Elizabeth Bulfinch Coolidge, 1 June 1830

I received your letter on my return from the country where I had been to spend a few days, and should have answered it immediately, but for a severe indisposition, the effect of cold, which confined me many days to my bed, and from which even now I am but imperfectly recovered. This must excuse...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 6 June 1830

I have been intending all the afternoon to write to you, dearest mother, but it is now past six and I am just beginning my letter; the children have been so much on my hands that I have found it impossible to get rid of them long enough to carry my intention into effect, so if I do not fill my...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 15 Oct. 1830

It is so long since I have written to any of you, dearest Virginia, that I am in debt to you all, and considering you as the eldest of the family, (married women being always older than single,) I shall begin address my first letter to you. Mama is absent on a visit to her friend Mrs Barrell at...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Joseph Coolidge, 15 Dec. 1830

I have written the letter of introduction for Mr Sparks & enclosed it to him in N. York as you desired, and as I had some sins of negligence unatoned towards the good lady, I wrote her another long explanatory & conciliatory letter to procure ...
