Lexington, Virginia lawyer James D. Davidson writes a one page note to Robert E. Lee asking him to explain his family relationship to Arthur Lee, signer of the Virginia's Deed of Cession in 1784. Lee responds initially on the same page. The note was then delivered back to Davidson who corrected his initial question and asks for an updated response which Lee provides on the reverse of the page.
