June 3rd, 1854


I have the honour to transmit, herewith my Statement of Funds expended during the month of May. Also estimate of Funds for the present month. It will be perceived that the item for the Board of Visitors in the latter paper covers only the amount now in the treasury—the amount really required should all the gentlemen invited be present will exceed the estimate about $850. as shown in my letter to you of the 28th April last.

I am very respectfully Your Obt. Serv.Signed/ R. E. Lee Br. Col:
