Petersburg 18 Febr 65


My dear Mary

I enclose Major Janney’s Count of the socks & return the bag. You will see that your Count is right. I arrived safely with all my property & find my table as usual filled with letters, which I must try & work off. I enclose a note to Miss Norma. Give much love to every body. Tell Margaret I am very uneasy.

Truly & affy

RE Lee


Mrs R E Lee


P.S. The other bag which you sent by express has not arrived
