Warm Springs VA: 3 Aug 1868
My dear Mr. Gordon
I thank you for your letters forwarded to me. I perceive a slight typographical error in the Circular. County for County will correct it except those not disposed. This is the day I had appointed to move to the Hot, but Mildred is unable. She was taken sick more than a fortnight since, & her attack seems to have partaken a typhoid character, She is very feeble & confined to her bed, though the Dr says she is better. I see little improvement, & can make no plans for the future. Please address me here & send all letters etc requiring my attention-
Mrs Lee & Agnes are better than when they arrived, though the latter is feeble & the former unable to walk.
I see Miss Edwined W. & her sister Mrs Houston every day. We are in the same cottage. (Page 2 ). Both are well. Mrs White & Mrs Newman have greatly improved. They sit at the table with us. There is a --?-- & pleasant couple & all seem pleased -
Remember me to all my friends &neighbors. How is Traveller. Tell him I miss him dreadfully & have repented of our separation but once, & that is the whole time, since we parted.
Mrs Lee & my daughters write in kind regards & I am
Very truly yours
R E Lee
P. S. I hope you are progressing with the work & that nothing relating to the College is suffering
