Sender: Robert E. Lee
Recipient: C. D. Hubbard

Dear Sir

I do not recollect the publication of a letter of mine such as you describe in the years 1865 ’66. I never wrote a letter for publication though some without any agency get into the papers. A reply to a letter of Genl Rosecrans, written on the 26 of last Aug: at the White Sulphur Springs, published in some of the papers, contains an expression of my opinion on the subject to which your refer, & may be the letter about which you inquire.

Very respy your obt servt

R E Lee
