Lexington Va

28 Nov 1866

 

I was delighted this morg my dear Miss Laura, at recg your kind note. You know how I wish that you had been the beau of the photographs & how much I want to see you. I shall envy the inmates of Mt de chantal, the privilege of having you with them this winter, & wish that you had selected Lexington instead. Give much love for me to Miss Emmie & your mother, & say how very glad I should be if they could come & see us. I am glad to hear that your father has been able to visit you, & that your mother will be with him this winter. Ask them if they Cannot take Lexington in their route?

I return with the photographs, the last one taken, that you may know me in my academic garb. Please present my kindest regards to Mrs Triplett, & to Misses Lizzie & Mary

Mrs. Lee & my daughters send you much love & I am with great affection

Most truly yours

R E Lee
