Title:Letter, Paris, to Julia [Ann DuBose Toombs], 1866 Dec. 23
Description:

In this Dec. 23, 1866 letter to his wife Julia, Robert Toombs, representative in the Georgia House of Representatives (1837-1843), in the U.S. Congress (1845-1853) and Senate (1853-1861), expresses his grief at parting with his wife and his attempts at telegraphing the port of departure to find out if the launch was successful. He elaborates on his own travel plans, and emphasizes his distress at the political turmoil at home. He talks about the Burts and their upcoming Italian trip, the weather, and his health. He closes and begins again four days later, thanking his wife for her note reassuring him of her well-being during the trip. He closes but opens again the next day, lamenting the death of a friend, which he was informed of that morning. He closes the letter briefly.
