<br /> Lee Letter: b274

Washington and Lee University

Sender: Richard Henry Lee
Recipient: Thomas Lee Shippen

My dear Cousin,

I replied to your kind letter conveying the materials for the breeches very soon after I received it – Since that I have not had the pleasure of hearing from you. The affairs of this world are wonderful thro-out their whole Ramifications – but I would not interrupt your improving studies by calling your attention to any subject less interesting –

As a matter of mere information I may inform you that upon a question to remove the Session of Congress from hence it was not determined in the affirmative. My best love always attends your house – farewell.

Richard Henry Lee

Are my horses gone to Virginia?
