List of Martha Jefferson’s Schoolmates at the Abbaye Royale de Panthemont

A list of the students at the Abbaye Royale de Panthemont, a convent school in Paris, dates to about 1787.  Number ten on the list is "Jefferson," or Martha "Patsy" Jefferson, the daughter of Thomas Jefferson, then working as a diplomat in Paris. A handwritten note on the reverse of the page notes that those names "marked with asterisks are the girls with whom she [Patsy] was intimate."
