Abstract:

The collection contains twelve letters written by Custis, 1776- 1781, mostly to Martha or George Washington, and one written to him by Martha Washington, 1779. He discusses family matters, his concern for his mother's health, and an explanation of how the smallpox vaccination will allow her to freely travel with George Washington during the revolutionary war.

Also, Custis seeks advice from George Washington on selling land due to high taxes. He expresses much concern over the depreciation of paper money and the need for stable currency. His 1781 letters describe the terrible situation of runaway slaves during the war and how many have been found dead in the woods. A 1779 letter from Martha to her son reports from military camp during the war. Also includes miscellaneous estate papers.
