Dolley Madison to Thomas Jefferson Randolph
|Montpellier August 1836.|
Mrs Madison presents her best respects and regard to Mr Jefferson Randolph, and offers in the words of her departed Husband the relic he bequeathed him. In executing his Will she fully participates in the sentiments which guided the disposition he made of it.
“I desire the Gold Mounted walking staff bequeathed to me by my late friend Thomas Jefferson be delivered to Thomas J. Randolph as well in testimony of the esteem I have for him, as from the knowledge I have of the place he held in the affections of his Grandfather.”
