<br /> Lee Letter: w379

Washington and Lee University

Sender: Robert E. Lee
Recipient: Charles Carter Lee

My dear brother Carter

I have recd your letter of the 15t & have written to Richardson. The word in question is written in the copy of the letter sent me Arga not Aga as stated in your last. I think it probable that the correct wording is Agra. I know no such place as Aga or Arga. You do not speak as to the three centuries. I think it ought to be less.

As regards the portraits I should prefer yours to mine (being the eldest son & the one to whom the letters were addressed) being inserted & have so told Richardson, but how far it would be judicious to add to the cost of the work, I leave to Mr Richardson to determine. I believe the portraits are enhanced in the Lee Family.

The girls send love – Give mine to all with you.

In much haste Affly yours

R E Lee
