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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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 editor, Colin Woodward, at  (804) 493-1940, about how you can contribute to this historic project.

General R. E. Lee:

General: I have the honor to acknowledge your letter of the 9th instant, inclosing one received from U. S. Grant, the commander of the Federal Army.

Your suggestions shall be carefully pursued, and may, I hope, have the results anticipated.

Very respectfully, yours

James A. Seddon,

Secretary of War
