Letters to Two Ladies by Thomas Jefferson, (April 1961), E332.2 .A5 1961A

Identifier: id3226

Scope and Contents

These letters to Anne Willing Bingham and Mary Jefferson exhibit Jefferson’s different writing styles and similar instructive tone. The first is to Ms. Bingham on the superlative occupations and repose of American life as opposed to Parisian. The second is a more casual and blunt letter to his daughter, Mary Jefferson, in which Jefferson asks her many questions regarding her happiness, habits, and developing talents as a housewife, and gives her careful guidelines for correct and moral behavior.
