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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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

I have received your letter enclosing the copies of telegrams from General Beauregard. I am glad that the attempt on Petersburg was thwarted and hope our cavalry will be able to protect the railroad.

Everything is quiet on the lines up to this hour and I can discover no movement on the part of the enemy.

Very Respt
