From Thomas Jefferson to Ellen Wayles Randolph Coolidge, 15 December 1806

Washington Dec. 15. 06

My dearest Ellen

This is our postday, and I have been so engaged that the hour of dinner & company are arriving before I could begin a letter to you. I shall therefore merely say we are all well, & I hope we shall hear to-night that all are well at Edgehill. tell your Mama, while you kiss her for me, that Rigden has returned & delivered me her watch neatly done, which will be sent by your papa. I send you something for your collection. kiss & bless all the young people for me, and be assured of my affectionate love.

Th: Jefferson

MHi: Coolidge Collection.
