Genl R E Lee

Dear Sir.

Will you be so good as to inform me of the chance to get boarding, the price etc, at Lexington.

I have a son that I wish to send to Lexington.

My home is Winchester Turnpike.  Write me at that place.

I met you at Richmond last winter.

Very truly

Your Obt Servant

A S Colyar
