This letter to Robert E. Lee is from Algernon Sidney Vigus. Vigus explains that he has acquired Lee family letters removed from the Lee family home at Arlington during the Civil War and that he'd like to return them. Vigus asks to keep one of the letters, to a Custis family member from London in 1728. Vigus ultimately returned the correspondence and Lee honored Vigus' request for the 1728 letter.
File includes article titled "They Surrendered Honorably," an excerpt from a letter to her cousin Caroline from Derwent, and a collection of letters from Mrs. Mary Custis Lee to the Snowden Family of Alexandria, Virginia entitled "My Dear Louisa."
This collection consists of a copy of a photograph of Annfield, the birthplace of Mrs. Robert E. Lee, in Clark County, Virginia.
