Title:Letter, Washington, Georgia to Julia A[nn DuBose] Toombs
Description:

In this July 10, 1854 letter, Robert Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), acknowledges receiving his wife's letter and hopes she and their daughter Sallie are enjoying themselves while away. Their eldest daughter Louisa is with him and ill but improving (this letter is written the year before she dies). He updates his wife on the progress of the work he's having done on their home. His legal work is moving along nicely, and he tells his wife he will finish as quickly as possible because he is anxious to see her again. He updates her on his brother Gabriel and sends greetings from a Mr. Stephens (most likely his longtime friend, neighbor, and fellow politician Alexander H. Stephens). He closes with his usual affection for her and for Sallie.
