Lexington VA: 6 June 1868

 

My dear Sir

I enclose powers of attorney for myself & daughter Mildred to sell the Virhinia stocks standing in our names.  My daughter Agnes is absent & has I am told her certificates  of stock with her.  I have sent her a power of attorney to execute & send to you with certificates, but I fear they will reach you too late.  You must do upon their arrival what you consider best  -  I enclose with the certificates of registered stock, the bonds issued for back interest  -  I suppose those in the name of my daughter Anne C. Lee, if not sold will have to be transferred to mine.  Those in Mildreds name if you do not think advisable to sell, retain-

After selling the bonds invest the amount to the credit of my daughter Mildred as you & Mr Jas: K. Caskie may think best  -  I also request that you let me know the amount  to my credit after selling the stock-

Very truly your obliged friend

R E Lee
