Summary
The collection contains one drawing by Thomas Jefferson on verso of letter, 1777, from Charles Lewis (N-537); 12 bills to Jefferson, chiefly from English taverns; and a ticket from the proposed Monticello lottery.
The collection also contains correspondence between James Monroe and Edmund Jennings Randolph about a financial matter, and a letter from Monroe to Thomas Mann Randolph about a treaty with Spain and a proposed surveying expedition about which Mathew Carey also writes.
There are legal papers and correspondence of Wilson Cary Nicholas over finances with Edmund Randolph, John Taylor and James Breckinridge as well as with Albert Gallatin about customs inspectors, Peyton Randolph on the election of Madison, and William Wirt about a naval appointment. Correspondence of Thomas Mann Randolph includes a letter of advice from his father on entering college, and letters concerning the Lynchburg bank, and a cruel overseer at Varina.
Correspondence of Thomas Jefferson Randolph concerns land purchases in Albemarle, repairs at the University of Virginia and memories of his wife. Letters of George Wythe Randolph deal with a feud between his father and John Randolph of Roanoke to Henry Stephens Randall and a lengthy discussion of Jefferson, abolition, and the Fugitive Slave Law.
The collection also contains a note from Dabney Carr, a letter from the sons of James A. Bayard to Samuel Smith about Jefferson's denial of an 1800 election deal with Bayard, a letter from Joseph Coolidge about publication of Jefferson's biography, and a legal statement of Peggy Eaton.
The remaining letters contain family news written by Ellen Wayles Randolph Coolidge, Jane Hollins Nicholas Randolph, Margaret Smith Nicholas, and Cornelia Jefferson Randolph. The collection also contains an account by Sarah Nicholas Randolph of George Wythe Randolph's death and an 1831 plat of Lego.
