Etienne St. Julien de Tournillon to Hore Browse Trist, 10 July 1829

j’étais très impatient D’avoir de vos nouvelles, lorsque V. lettre du 18. ul. est venue très à propos mettre un terme à mon anxiété. je Sympathise avec vous dans la perte que vous avez faîtte de Votre domestique: cet accident m’a raporté vers L’épôque du départ de mon cher julien, et me fait...

Joseph Coolidge to Nicholas P. Trist, 16 July 1829

I wish you to forward the accompanying packet to Jefferson, wherever he may be, only taking care that it reach him safely, and without delay. I hope soon to have time to write to you;—the books have arrived at last, but more of them...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 21 July 1829

It is long since I heard from you, my own dear Virginia, but still longer since I have written to you, and I have no right to complain of, however I may regret, your silence. I know what the trouble of children is, and do not wonder at your making what I am fain to call you, after Mr Matthews, “a...

Hore Browse Trist to Nicholas P. Trist, [ca. 3 Aug. 1829]

I have Just received yr last and the enclosed about the Advocate. un homme sans le sou. You had better come as soon as possible,—There have been some applications for books & the applicants are put off until your arrival Mr Van Buren will return to day. & there will be perhaps something...

Mary J. Randolph to Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge, 23 Aug. 1829

it seems a long time since we have heard from you my dearest sister, and I believe that we on our parts have not been very regular in writing to you of late. I spent the week before the last, which is now just ended, in Charlottesville with Cornelia and she I think wrote you from there. she is...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge, 31 Aug. 1829

I have only time to write you a line dear Ellen, to tell you the news. Jefferson has a son at last, born on the mor at two oclock in the morning of the 29. Jane suffered less than common at the time but complained more of weakness, afterwards. to day the third day, she has a good deal of fever....

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia Jefferson Randolph, 4 Sept. 1829

You shd not, Dearest, have allowed anything to keep me so long witht hearing from you. On sunday, I postponed my letter one post from my having written during the week, & from the conviction that I shd myself receive one the next morning. I walked to the p.o. in this assurance: but was...

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...

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...
