Title:Letter, Washington, D.C. to Julia A[nn DuBose] Toombs, Washington, Georgia, 1851 Jan. 3
Description:

In this Jan. 3, 1851 letter to his wife, Julia Ann DuBose Toombs, Robert Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), opens by discussing his and his wife's health. He then describes the comings and goings of their friends the Burts and Dawsons. His daughter Sallie has evidently desired to join a church in Georgia, and Toombs tells his wife that, for him, Sallie is free to decide for herself. The last item he discusses is his wife and daughter Louisa's upcoming visit. He closes briefly but with affection for all.
