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...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 1 July 1822

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

You will not think, I know, my beloved Virginia, from my tardiness in answering your two last letters, that my heart has been backward in acknowledging the tenderness that breathes throughout them.— They show me that I am loved as I wish to be;—as I, myself, Love: do not therefore be too...

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph (Trist), 29 July 1822

It is well, my dearest Virginia, you did not wait for a sight of the sun’s “blessed face” before writing, for my indignation had been gathering for three or four weeks, and I had fixed on to-day for pouring it forth— Don’t infer from this that my disposition is an exacting one, in general; it is...

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph (Trist), 11 Aug. 1822

I wish, my dearest Love, I had another letter from you, to answer today, for they are certainly by far my greatest source of pleasure. next comes that of writing to you, and the consciousness that I am preparing pleasure to “her whom I love best on earth”; which you see I indulge in tolerably...

Virginia J. Randolph (Trist) to Nicholas P. Trist, 19 Aug. 1822

I hope the fever which you have had is not the prelude of a more serious attack, My Dear Nicholas, but as this is the most sickly part of the year I would recommend great care of your health, to preserve which, strict attention to the diet, regular exercise before the heat of the day, and an...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 1 Sept. 1822

No apology is due to me Dearest Nicholas for any delay in answering my letters, who have now before me two of yours unanswered. It is really a singular circumstance that loving you, and thinking of you as much as I do, I should still be so much under the influence of a habit contracted in early...

Ellen W. Randolph (Coolidge) to Nicholas P. Trist, 8 Sept. 1822

I have been owing you a letter for a long time, my dear Nicholas, and have delayed writing, in the hope that an improved state of health and spirits would have enabled me to discharge my debt with some pleasure to you, as well as to my self, but days and weeks have passed, and left as they found...

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph (Trist), 12 Sept. 1822

Your last, written more than six weeks ago, informed me of the existing indisposition of several of the family.

I have waited a few days to enable me to have a good report to give you of Mama’s health, Dearest Nicholas, in my answer to the letter I received from you a few days ago. when I wrote last I mention’d a slight head-ache which she Mama was afflicted with, but which lasted a very short time;...

Virginia J. Randolph (Trist) to Nicholas P. Trist, 12 Nov. 1822

I have been disappointed in hearing from you as I expected certainly to have done this evening, My Dear Nicholas, and have a great mind not to write to you atall, until I do get a letter, but as you have constituted your self the “repository” of all that passes in my thoughts, the terror and...

It is just a year to day; my dear Nicholas since we left Monticello together, you, anticipating a long fatiguing journey, I, a short and pleasant one (in your society in spite of bad weather and roads) and a winter of gaiety & amusement—Time as he bears us along with him frequently appears to...

Virginia J. Randolph (Trist) to Nicholas P. Trist, 20 Dec. 1822

A long and unavoidable separation from one so much loved, as you are , Dearest Nicholas, would be painful enough without the fears and melancholy forebodings that I have on the subject of your health.

Ellen W. Randolph (Coolidge) to Nicholas P. Trist, 20-21 Jan. 1823

I was not aware, my dear Nicholas, when I wrote last that the blues were so strong upon me, or I should have prevented them from tinging my letter with their sombre colours. this is in every body's power, if they must feel uncomfortable themselves, they can at least avoid making others so, and in...
