    Description

    General Robert E. Lee Washington College Document Signed "R E Lee". One page, 8" x 10.5", partly printed, Lexington, Virginia, June 18, 1868. This is basically a "report card" for a student named G. W. Pilson for the half session, signed by Lee as president of the college. Mr. Pilson took Latin (11th of 22 in class), Greek (13th of 18 in class), and Mathematics (1st of 11 in class). This venerable institution is now known as Washington and Lee University, named after George Washington who provided its first large endowment, and Robert E. Lee who served as president from just after the Civil War until his death in 1870. Very good condition with folds, light soiling, and fold over ink transference affecting the signature a bit. Also included in this lot is a period engraving of Lee and a printed 1907 centenary tribute by Theodore Roosevelt. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
