Sender: Robert E. Lee
Recipient: Mary C. Jerdone

My dear Miss Mary

I am much gratified to find that I am still remembered by you & am very grateful for your pretty New Years gift. It will be very useful & I require nothing to remind me of my Camp near Bloomsburg – I can think of nothing to send in return but the accompy photograph. It may serve to scare away those Cavaliers who were so fond of bearing you off on horseback. I hope you are very well & that this year may bring you much happiness. With every good wish to yourself & kind regards to your father & mother,

I remain very truly yours

R E Lee
