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 It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online.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

Mrs. Cocke has decided not to go this morg. I therefore send this by mail.

Mrs. Rhodes has written to me that she has sent me a number of the London Quarterly containing an article on the “close of the War in America.” If it has reached you please send it, if an opportunity occurs, or bringing it with you.

very affy yours

R E Lee

Mrs M. C. Lee
