Lexington, Va., 12 March 1867.

Mr. A. D. Fitch

Dayton, Ohio.

 

My Dear Sir:

I have recd your letter of the 8th inst.; but, as I have not read the book to which you refer, can express no opinion concerning it; nor do I know from what source Mr. McCabe derived his information.

Very respectfully,

(sgd.) R. E. Lee
