In my letter to my daughter, of the last week, I suggested to her that a possibility had arisen that I might not return home as early as I had determined. It happened unfortunately that the attack made on me in the newspapers came out soon after I began to speak freely and publicly of my purpose to retire this spring, and, from the modes of publication, the public were possessed of the former...
I recieved about a fortnight ago your favor of Jan. 24. and by this week’s post Maria received the one addressed to her. I am extremely pleased with the progress of the work at Monticello, and indebted to you for it, as also for communicating it, as well as the account of the sales in Bedford. I am in hopes of procuring tenants in Maryland for all my lands on the Shadwell side of the river at...
Since my letter of the last week to my daughter yours of the 7th. to me and of the 14th. to Maria have come to hand and made us happy by announcing that all are well.—I informed you in my last of a scheme I had of leasing my lands on the Shadwell side of the river. Since that I have learned that, about the same time, two persons from the Head of Elk (the neighborhood where I was endeavoring to...
I have to acknolege the receipt of your two favors of Feb. 20. and 29. on the 9th. instant. I wrote to my daughter the last week (the 10th.) as usual. I thank you for your information respecting my affairs. I counted little on Ronald or his affairs for my debt. I took a mortgage of the land sold, and of a moiety of his Beverdam land. I previously had the Goochld. records examined in my own...
I wrote to my daughter on the 24th. since which Maria has received yours of the 13th . Some cold nights lately make us fear for the fruit in Virginia. We have nothing remarkeable from abroad but what you will see in Freneau’s paper. Fenno’s will go to you through Mr. Madison. Private letters strengthen the idea of a civil war in England, and of a very general war through Europe. I am in hopes...
I have intended this fortnight to make out a list of the packages of furniture I have sent to Richmond, with the contents of each, that if there was any thing which would be convenient to yourself or Martha, you might have it brought up immediately; but an eternal hurry of business prevents me from thinking of that or any thing else of a private nature but just in the moment of setting down to...
The inclosed papers will inform you of some checks the French have lately received. They are confounded and multiplied in the papers. The truth is that a combined operation in three different parts took place the first days of March, under Clairfayt, Saxe-Cobourg and Brunswick, every one of which succeeded. The first killed and wounded 1400, and took 600. The second killed and wounded 4000....
Your favor of the 8th. came to hand yesterday. I received one at the same time of May 13. from Dr. Currie expressing his hope that Colo. T. Randolph would get the better of his complaints. This circumstance with that of your being all returned to Monticello in good health is most pleasing to my mind. Maria appears entirely recovered. At least I am relieved from apprehensions as to the nature...
I have to acknolege the receipt of yours of May 16. with the information always pleasing of your being all well.—In addition to the news which you will see in the papers, we now have the certainty of Dumourier’s operation. He had proposed an armistice to the Prince of Saxe Cobourg, which was agreed to on condition of his withdrawing his troops from the Netherlands. He did so. It was then...
All well, but not a moment to write. RC ( DLC ); addressed: “Thomas M. Randolph junr. esq. at Monticello near Charlottesville”; franked and postmarked. Not recorded in SJL .
