Postscript, Martha Washington to George Washington, March 30, 1767

Subject

Correspondence between Martha and George Washington

Description

Appended to a letter from Lund Washington to George Washington, this brief note is significant primarily because it is one of two surviving communications from Martha to George Washington. After George’s death, Martha destroyed their correspondence; only a handful of letters survived. The note expresses Martha’s pleasure that George had safely arrived in Williamsburg, where he had journeyed to attend a session of the House of Burgesses (image courtesy of Mount Vernon Ladies' Association).
