My dear “Whitice”

Two copies of the “The News of the Highlands” containing your “Recollections of West Point” reached me a few days since, forwarded to this place from my old address in Washington DC – I have enjoyed reading what you remember very much & regret that it is so little – There is to much I would like to recall – I find however that you remember more than & I do – There are many names & incidents that have never been in my mind since I was a boy there with you fifty six years ago. I would like to read all you write & hope you will have published in some form so that I can get it –

Tell all you can remember about every one & every thing –

I paid a visit to the old place in /94 – I hardly knew it – tho there were many of the old landmarks I recognized. Wishing you success & happiness in all things I am Affectionately

your old friend

R E Lee
