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), 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...

I was most extremely concern’d to find by a letter I received from Botidoux, that my dear Jefferson had been so much indisposed—illness has prevented my writing to inquire after you—but though I have hitherto been silent on that head, I trust you will easily credit the assurance of my having been...
