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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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 us about how you can contribute to this historic project.



Dr Sir:


Herewith I send you the song which I have promised, and which I hope will please the ear, both of Mrs. Lee & yourself, better than the music which Mrs. Lee has to the same words. Yrs respectfully
