This collection of letters chronicles the personal lives of founding father John Jay and his wife, Sarah Livingston Jay, in the tumultuous times during and after the American Revolution. The letters showcase Sarah as a devoted wife and mother who also helped further her husband's political career. Their correspondence reveals the abiding love of husband and wife, their concern for their children, the dangers and difficulties of travel, descriptions of the lands they visited and events they witnessed, as well as a sense of the effort it took to survive in the era even with the buffer of wealth. The book includes essays on the Jay and Livingston families, family trees, and information about the character and appearance of both husband and wife. Importantly, there are bridges between the letters where necessary and essays on several topics which provide a context for the reader.
