Recipient: Robert E. Lee

Dr Sir.

One of Georgia’s fairest daughters begs me to write you & request one of your “carte de viste” with yr autograph. It is unnecessary for me to say that yr name is a household word of love, gratitude, & respect, in this state, as in your own. For myself I am proud to assure you, that as for four years, I am still yrs to command & with warmest admiration, I beg to subscribe myself.

Yr obt sevt

T. P. Branch
