Thomas Mann Randolph to Mary J. Randolph

My dear Mary

I thank you for the recent pleasing information from Boston.

I am not surprized to hear that you all caught colds upon the transition from such a house as Monticello to that at Tufton.

I received the other Albion1 yesterday & inclose it now.

I am hurrying my departure all in my power and begin to feel very anxious about the delay of it which has been unavoidable.

God bless you and Dear Virginia. I shall see Ellen tomorrow
