Title:Letter, Washington, Georgia to Julia [Ann DuBose Toombs], 1856 Mar. 14
Description:

In this March 14, 1856 letter, Robert Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), describes his current court case and its annoyances and schedule. He then discusses the weather where he is, at home, versus the weather where his wife is, in Washington. Telling his wife of a dream he had of her, he offers lighthearted pleasantries to cheer her and himself. He speaks more of his court business, mentioning his friend [Alexander] Stephens, Pope, and Julia's brother James. He also assures her of the well-being of her sister Harriet (married to Robert Toombs's half-brother Lawrence Catlett Toombs) and family, and of the well-being of Toombs's brother Gabriel and family. He closes the letter with his usual affection for his wife and daughter Sallie.
