Title:Letter to Julia [Ann DuBose Toombs], 1862 Mar. 22
Description:

Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), briefly discusses his correspondence with his wife. He then turns to martial matters, noting the recent Confederate retreat, the health of his troops, and his distate at possibly being offered the position of [Confederate President] Davis' chief clerk; he expresses irritated sympathy for Davis. Discussing domestic issues, Toombs advises his wife of the care of their crops, their finances, and the upkeep of their home. In noting that his wife's brother has died, he shares her sadness. He closes with more than his usual affection for her, their family, and their friends.
