John Ramsay to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 29 Sept. 1827

I have the honor to acknowledge the rect of your letter from Cambridge, with the accompanying power of Attorney, which I am happy to say, will enable me to bring the buisiness of the stock to a speedy close; when the proceeds shall be placed, in the Branch Bank...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 6 May 1828

Your letter of the 2nd my dearest mother, was joyfully received and relieved me from a portion of those vague apprehensions which always attend me for some time after parting with those I love. I always feel as if there were some ill-defined danger hovering over my absent friends, & am ready...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 28–29 May 1828

Your letter dearest mother, relieved me from some anxious thoughts which were beginning to take possession of my mind at not hearing of your arrival at Monticello. Col. Peyton mentioned in his letter to Joseph that you were not very well when you left Richmond, & my fears for your health were...

Joseph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, Aug. 7 [1828]

To any one else I should feel it necessary to begin my letter with an apology, but I have such confidence in your affection, and reasonableness, as to hope that you will excuse my seeming negligence when I frankly tell you that knowing Ellen wrote regularly, I have not forced my thoughts from the...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 19 Aug. 1828

It is late in the morning of Tuesday, dearest mother, and I should not attempt to write, as I dislike so much to be hurried in writing to you, but having in my last mentioned Ellen’s illness I thought you might be anxious to hear again. she is very much better, but still pale & thin; I...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 28 Oct. 1828

I have been most anxiously expecting a letter for some time past, my dear mother, that I might hear something more of this appointment of Nicholas’s. Burwell wrote me that Mr Clay had named him to a place worth $ 1600. a year, but from you I have heard not one word, and know not how to account...

Joseph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 29 Dec. 1828

At 8 oClock this morning, (Decr 29,) Ellen gave me a Son!—They, the mother and child, are both perfectly well: her troubles were not quite so speedily over as in the case of Bess, but they did not last long (not half an hour,) and were not of a very distressing kind: She has been well through the...

Joseph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, [1 Jan. 1829]

I doubt not your anxiety to hear from our new comer will make a letter welcome altho. it dates but two days after the one announcing his first arrival: Ellen is quite well, and her infant—although he did make his appearance three weeks too soon is thriving—being what mrs Christian calls “an...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 21–24 June 1829

I take so little note of time, my dearest mother, even by it’s loss, that I do not know exactly when I last wrote to any of you, but it seems to me more than a fortnight, and perhaps you are beginning to be surprised at my silence. I have been very busy getting the little girls ready to go into...

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 Martha Jefferson Randolph, 21 July 1833

I came to town yesterday to try & hear of other lodgings as I find those at Newton entirely insufferable and your letter was put into my hands. I write to inform you of the sale of the pictures which took place a few days ago—the proceeds when all expenses are paid, the...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 5 Sept. 1836

you have no doubt heard from George but lest you should not I send this letter which I have this moment received. Virginia left Newport on the 1st & I shall return to Boston by the 14th. I am as heartily tired of Newport as I ever was of any spot upon Earth. It is hard to say whether the ...
