Abstract:

On 24 April 1791, Jefferson, Philadelphia, writes about fruit trees and a veil for a hat; on 15 December 1793, Philadelphia, he writes about Eli Alexander going to Monticello to "take charge of the plantations under Byrd Rogers;" and on 1 April 1798, Philadelphia, he complains about the slowness of the postal service, jokes that her good penmanship puts her in "great danger of the office of private secretary at Monticello," and mentions building plans.

From Monticello, April 1801, he asks when she and her husband will arrive at Monticello and talks about his plans to return to Washington. From Washington, 24 June 1801, he writes about broken skylights at Monticello from a hailstorm and hopes she and her sister will spend spring or fall with him in Washington; and from Washington, 26 February 1804 he congratulates Maria at Edgehill on the birth of her child and hopes to see her at Monticello for a month in the summer.
