<br /> Lee Letter: wl018

Washington and Lee University

Sender: Cazeneau McLeod
Recipient: Robert E.Lee

Sir, –

I have the honor, to ask for a reply, to a letter from my uncle, Mr. G. B. Lamon in relation, to schools in Virginia. I am very deficient, – even more so, than most boys of my age. Yet, still I, hope to recover what, I have lost during the last war, – I, am the son of a Confederate officer, and, who died in the service of his country. – Genl Hugh McLeod, of Texas, – My, Father was a graduate of West Point, but, I have quite enough of Military for the present. I would like some, preparatory school for the University. Please send me, your answer to my uncle, and, – oblige, Yours

Most Respectfully,

Cazeneau McLeod

P.S. Direct to C. McLeod Care Mrs. J. T. McDowell Fredericksburg Va.
