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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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

I recd your kind note last night. I am obliged to go to the right to day & will be compelled to visit Richmond the first moment I can. I do not know when I shall See you. You must therefore make your arrangements to return irrespective of me. Thank Mrs Meade & Mrs P__ for their kindness to you in my name, for I fear I shall not be able. Bryan will do for you anything you desire. Let me know what I can do. Truly & affy your father
