Glasgow, Va. March 3 1892

My dr Dr

            Accept my thanks for the copy photograph taken in Richmond 1865 of Gen Lee & Custis. I remember the occasion.

            I think the photograph of the General makes him too old & too severe though a good likeness. There is another of him taken alone by Brady at same time in which he is so presented as standing with his hand resting on a chair & is the best by far I know. Brady is still in Washington & I have no doubt has still the negative. Gen Lee sent my father one, which I have now.

            My family are at Lexington & all well

Very truly yrs

Fitzhugh Lee
