Juliana Annesley (Maxwell) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 20 April 1786

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

I thought My Dr Jefferson we had made an agreement to write to each other once every week—just before I left London I wrote you a letter of 5 pages, (therefore you can not complain of its shortness) & have not received any answer whatsoever—I have puzzled my brain for some days past to find...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1788]

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), 6 May [1788]

I have taken the liberty of sending you my name & place of abode, imagining they might be both necessary, before you could fulfil the promise you made me some time ago to writing me a letter in French of six pages—as most probably you must have forgot both e’er this. Hoping you will excuse...

Bridget Hawkins (Roper-Curzon) to Martha Jefferson Randolph, [19 May 1788]

O is it really true that my Dr Jefferson dictated the paragraph in my friend Botidoux’s letter—that when you had time, you might acknowledge the receipt of my last letters. I flatter myself still that you are not quite so indifferent to your friend as to send her such a message, were it not at...

Bridget Hawkins Roper-Curzon to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1789]

Elizabeth Tufton to Martha Jefferson (Randolph), [ca. 1789]
