Andrew Jackson to Meriwether Lewis Randolph, 6 July 1836

Congress having, at last, adjourned it gives me a moment to acknowledge your letter of the 8th of May last—This I would have done sooner but I was waiting information from home, of what had been done, if any thing, with my the studs, before I could reply to this part of your letter—I am still...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Ann C. Morris, 17 Aug. 1836

It is a long time dear Sister since a letter passed between us, at whose door the ommission lies I do not know, but certain I am no blame should attach to either, for there never can exist any feelings between us deserving so harsh a feeling. My health which has been very miserable this spring...

I arrived here some time ago from the Mediteranean in a Merchant ship, having returned to prepare for my approaching examination which comes on shortly, as I did’nt know where Mama was I have not written to her yet, I wish you would give me Lewis’s direction when you write as I should like to...

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 ...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 8–9 Feb. 1837

It is long since I have written to, or heard from you, my dear Virginia, and Mary and myself are beginning to grow quite uneasy at receiving absolutely no accounts from Havana. Our last dates are Dec. 15. nearly two months old, and as vessels are arriving in the Southern ports every day, and...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 25 Sept. 1837

I am much pressed for time, dearest Virginia, but cannot let Sarah Webber go to Havana without a few lines for you. She accompanies the Knights and promises herself great satisfaction in seeing Joseph. She will perhaps remain all winter but, as this depends on her humour which is rather variable,...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Andrew Jackson, 27 Nov. 1837

My brother, Mr Trist, has suggested to me that you might possibly read with pleasure a little work on the Abolition Question by a lady of this State—a copy of which I had lately sent to him. It is, we think, worthy of praise for it’s mild and christian spirit, it’s correct statement of facts, and...

My Boy has arrived safe, and many thanks to you, and dear Virginia, for your care of him: to this, and the change of climate, we probably owe his life; and, after he has been turned out loose, to run wild, as a colt, in the Albemarle hills, I firmly count on his becoming in time a Man! I have...

Extract from Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge’s London Travel Diary, 27 July 1838

On Wednesday we went accompanied by Mr Ashburner, to the Oriental Club. He conducted us through all that part of the building open to strangers and explained to me the system of Club Life—a thing very perfect in it’s way. Whether this way is as good in it’s results as it is certainly well adapted...

Extract from Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge’s London Travel Diary, 2 Aug. 1838

Yesterday we visited the Tower. There is no place in England better worth seeing when we remember all that it’s old grey walls have seen. An American should feel the influence of the grand recollections attached to the Tower of London even more than an Englishman. Our common origin connects us as...

Extract from Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge’s London Travel Diary, 1 Oct. 1838

I have been hoping for some time past to get away from London before the fine season was quite over. It is now decided that we go to Edinburgh. I am overjoyed at the thought. I shall see Scotland, I shall hear the “sweet Doric” of her spoken tongue, and in the home of Burns and Walter Scott do...
