Fredericksburg, December 13, 1862

 

General Cooper

Adjutant and Inspector General:

I request no one to be sent to the army except those attached to it on duty. All others are hindrances.

R E Lee,

General, Commanding

 

General Lee:

Your wish shall be observed that no one be sent to your army except those attached to it on duty. I would suggest that you send those away not so attached. Would you wish any aid of physicians or nurses?

 

S. Cooper
