<br /> Lee Letter: b004

Washington and Lee University

Sender: Richard Henry Lee
Recipient: – –

Dear Sir,

By the Governor s Speech, which you have inclosed, you may perceive, that considerable business was marked out for us. But our glorious resolution of yesterday, to be defended by Militia, to have no further concern with Regulars, will put a short period to the Session, which now we expect will rise by Wednesday next. Two addresses that are ordered by the House have not yet been presented. I am with much regard, dear Sir,

your most affectionate friend.

R. H. Lee
