The Lee Family Digital Archive is the largest online source for primary source materials concerning the Lee family of Virginia. It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online. We are always looking for new letters, diaries, and books to add to our website. Do you have a rare item that you would like to donate or share with us? If so, please contact our curator, Colin Woodward, about how you can contribute to this historic project.



Richmond 9 May '65


            I am surprized Miss Bella that you should want the likeness of an old man when you can get that of So many young ones, but as Keith Says such is the case, I send the last I have. I hope it may Save, to us all Sometimes ones who will never forget you.

Very truly,

R E Lee
