Sender: Reverend Alexander B. Grosart
Recipient: Robert E.Lee

Honoured Sir

By the request of a member of my congregation (Prince’s Road United presbyterian) I beg to intimate that some considerable time ago a large and handsome edition of the English Bible suitably bound, was purchased as a gift intended for your acceptance as a slight token of the profound admiration cherished toward you as a noble Christian soldier and gentleman.

This Bible was procured as the result of the voluntary offerings of a few friends: and I take the liberty to trouble you with this note and to ask how what address (free of all charges to yourself) it can best be forwarded. Trusting, Sir, that I will have the honour and pleasure of hearing from you I rest

With much regard

Revd Alex: B. Grosart
