John Randolph wrote from New York, NY to St. George Tucker, his father, addressed to Matoax, VA. He wrote about the possibility of him returning home to Virginia, at least for the break. He said it was much more costly in New York to live and was apprehensive because he had not gotten a response to his last two letters. He also wrote about Dr. Johnson, his admittance to college, and how he wanted to change his course of study from Greek to modern languages. He asked that his love be sent to Miss Maria and the children.
