Lexington VA: 28 Dec 65



Mrs M. B. Brown


I have the chair sent me by some of the young ladies of your seminary.  I beg that  you will present to them my sincere thanks for their very acceptable gift.  It shall have a place in my own room & while daily administering to my comfort will keep constantly in my mind those to whose kind consideration, I shall be ever indebted & of whom I shall delight to think.


With great respect

   I am your ObtServt


R E Lee
