Title:Letter, Washington, D.C. to Julia A[nn DuBose Toombs], Memphis, Tennessee, 1859 Mar. 2
Description:

In this March 2, 1859 letter focusing on domestic issues, Robert Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), acknowledges receipt of several of his wife's letters, and apologizes for the brevity of his, since they are written hastily during Senate sessions. He describes Molly Bright's wedding in Washington, D.C., which Mrs. Toombs had apparently asked about. He expresses his desire to see her, but suggests that she stay with their daughter Sallie and her new child. He closes with affection.
