Title:Letter, Washington, D.C., to Julia A[nn DuBose] Toombs, 1854 July 4
Description:

In this letter, July 4, 1854, Robert Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), opens by expressing regret that he missed seeing his wife and daughter at breakfast. For the rest of this short letter, Toombs discusses his political engagements in Washington and elsewhere. He ends by stating his travel plans and closes with briefer than usual affection.
