To Martha Jefferson Randolph
Philadelphia Mar. 2.
My dear daughter
The present will serve just to tell you that I am well, and to keep up my plan of writing once a week whether I have any thing to say or not. Congress rises tomorrow. They have passed no laws remarkeable except the excise law and one establishing a bank. Mrs. Trist and Mrs. Waters always enquire after you and desire me to remember them to you. I hope you are by this time able to be about again and in good health as well as the little one. Kiss it and Maria for me. I have received her letter and will answer it next week. I inclose a letter for M. de Rieux. Present my esteem to Mr. Randolph.—Your’s affectionately,
RC (NNP). The letter from Mary was evidently that of 22 Jan. 1791 (see Mary Walker Lewis to TJ, 23 Jan. 1791, note).
