Near Cartersville 8 Sept ‘65

 

My dear Miss Nannie

It has given me great pleasure to comply with the request contained in your note of the 2nd Inst.

I regret very much not having seen you before leaving Richmond, but I know it is owing to Genl Fitz Lee, who wishes no one to look at you but himself.

My daughter Agnes has recovered from her attack of fever & she & Mildred send their kind regards.

Wishing you every happiness I am most truly yours

R E Lee
