Memoirs and Letters of Dolly Madison (Annotated) by Dolly Madison
Without question one of our most remarkable First Ladies and Americans, here is Dolly Madison in her own words. This long-forgotten, out-of-print volume is now available for the first time for Kindle.
Read her loving correspondence with her husband, James Madison, and her many famous friends like Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. Her fire and humor are all on display here in a collection edited in 1886 by her grand-niece.
Her birth registry gives her name as "Dolley" but she signed her letters and will as Dolly. Regrettably, like many of her background, was a slave owner nearly to the end of her life and after her husband's death, fell into poverty. She eventually had to sell the family plantation and all her remaining slaves.
Daniel Webster bought her former butler and gave him his freedom. He asked the butler to purchase anything in the market that he thought Dolly might want or need and take it to her at Webster's expense.
