Mr. Jay Rides Circuit
Abstract:Several years ago, when two John Jay Homestead 1 colleagues, Louise V. North and Janet M. Wedge, and I contemplated compiling and editing a book of correspondence between John Jay and his wife Sarah Livingston Jay, we agreed that our goal would be to chronicle the personal lives of the Jays in the tumultuous times during and after the American Revolution. In the process of choosing the letters for The Selected Letters of John Jay and Sarah Livingston Jay, published in 2005, we came to a true appreciation of the Jays' commitment toward their country.
