Abstract:

The collection is chiefly family correspondence of the Trist and Randolph families. Especially prominent among the correspondents are Elizabeth Trist and the Randolph women. Most letters relate to family life, but also covered to varying degrees are Nicholas Trist's career; the management of the plantations in Lafourche Parish, La.; the education of the Trist children, including that of Jefferson; and Nicholas's various professional activities. Also included are letters between Virginia's sister, Cornelia Randolph, and literary agent, Thomas Bulfinch (1796-1867). Correspondence also documents life in the various locations where the Trists lived: from 1765 to 1828 in Louisiana and Charlottesville, Va., including their early married life at Monticello; from 1828 to 1833 in Washington, D.C.; from 1834 to 1845 in Havana, Cuba; and in later years, in New York, Philadelphia, and Alexandria, Va. In addition to correspondence, the collection contains a small amount of financial and legal papers, school materials, genealogical information, and other items.
