<br /> Lee Letter: n204

Washington and Lee University

Sender: George Washington
Recipient: Edmond Lee

Dear Sir:

Your letter of the 30th. Ulto. was presented to me yesterday.

The apology you have offered for breaking the Seal of my Nephews letter, to
me, is perfectly satisfactory. The like has often happened to myself.

I hope I shall see General Lee before he leaves this part of the Country.
The enclosed for Mr. Corbin Washington, I request the favour of you to
be caused to be delivered to him before he leaves Alexandria (and the
sooner the better) if he is not at your house.

With esteem,
etc.1
