Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to James Madison, 20 Mar. 1830

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...
