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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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



My dear Custis


I enclose a letter from Genl Rodes in answer to my request to Cause an examination to be made for your horse. It is gratifying to read what he says of Eugene [Webster].

I wrote to Genl Ewell also, but he said he Could hear nothing of him. I do not Know that I shall be able to see you to day.

Very truly

R E Lee

10 Aug ’62
