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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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



Greenwood     30 June ‘63


I have recd dear M. your letter from Richmond announcing Mildreds arrival, & that of the 21st from Hickory Hill. I am glad you found F__ doing well & all happy there. Tell Mildred I am much obliged to her for her letter, which I will answer when I can. I grieve that I cannot see her, but I trust the time will Come yet. I saw in Smithfield Some of her schoolmates in Winchester Miss Fanny Mc__ in __. All inquired kindly after her & sent much love. I hope you will get to the Hot. Perhaps you can take Rob with you, or rather he can take you. Give much love to F, Chass, the girls & all at H. H. All must remember us in their prayers. I think Constantly of you & pray for your welfare & happiness. It is doubtful whether this gets through. Therefore I say nothing more.

Truly &c
