General;

It has been a source of much regret to me that your Brigade has been deprived of your valuable services by the wound which you received in action. – I should be glad to hear from you, how you are progressing in your convalescence, – and hope that you may soon be restored to your usual vigor, and be enabled to return to your command where you have rendered and may still render, such valuable assistance to our cause. – very respectfully

Your obdt. servt. –

R E Lee Genl

Brig. Gen T. L. Rosser. –

The document, written on lined paper, is in an unknown handwriting, but signed by Lee. In the upper-left corner of the first page is an imprinted crest. The crest is not the coat-of-arms of the Lee Family, however.
