Book Description:
From modest Quaker beginnings as the child of financially insecure parents and the wife of a stolid young lawyer to the excitement and challenges of life as the nation s first First Lady arguably the most influential role in the American government s formative years Dolley Payne Todd Madison (1768 1849) led an extraordinary life. David B. Mattern and Holly C. Shulman have culled a particularly rich selection of her letters to illuminate the story of the woman widely credited with setting the standard for successive generations of Washington s political women. This collection will prove an invaluable resource in current political and historical circles, where the role founding mothers played both as supportive family members and as crucial political negotiators is increasingly recognized and studied.

Organized chronologically into five sections reaching from her correspondence as a young adult in late eighteenth century Philadelphia up to the letters of her widowhood in 1840s Washington, and with a helpful contextualizing introduction to each section, The Selected Letters of Dolley Payne Madison provides a long overdue biographical sketch of one of the early republic s most fascinating personalities.
