Dolley Madison1805-11-15James MadisonPhiladelphia, PA39.9525839-75.1652215My Darling Husband, -- I have just parted from Colonel Patton, who is well pleased with the payment of the horses, and congratulated me on possessing such a handsome pair. I went to pay some visits this morning, and on my return found Anthony Morris waiting, with a petition from his wife that I would let him wait upon me to her house for some days; but I am too fearful of taxing my strength, much as I love these old and dear friends. * * *November 17. -- Anna and her husband arrived last evening, my beloved, and so pleased and agitated was I, that I could not sleep. We will leave on Monday, if I am quite strong enough, but I will await your commands. Farewell my beloved one,Dolly.
