University of Virginia. A useful guide is Constance E. Thurlow and Francis L. Ber- keley, Jr., The Jefferson Papers of the University of Virginia. Of special value in this collection is James A. Beard's typescript and photocopy of the collection of Jefferson account books, which are otherwise scattered. Here, too, one may see copies of the memoirs of Martha Jefferson Randolph, Thomas Jefferson Randolph, and Ellen Randolph Coolidge. The Edgehill Randolph Papers, the Carr and Cary Papers, and a recently acquired collection of letters by Ellen Coolidge are useful for providing information about Jefferson's kin.
