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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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.

From H. Lee to Dr Mayo (fr: original)

Dear Sir,

            I forgot to mention how much obliged to you I shall feel for the books you offer me, & that they will reach me if sent to the Messrs. R. & J. Mandeville of Alexa. The ladies were pleased with your remembrance of them & Mrs. Lee is glad to hear you are to return in December.


H. Lee
