    Description

    Robert E. Lee Partial Autograph Letter with Postscript Signed "R E L.", three pages total, with lower portion missing, Richmond, Virginia, July 29, 1869, to Fitzhugh Lee, Stafford County, Virginia. Labeled "Confidential" across the upper left corner, this letter regards finding employment for Sidney Smith Lee, father of Fitzhugh Lee. Unfortunately, the signature has been clipped along with the lower quarter of the sheet. A second sheet, signed with Lee's initials on the verso, contains a postscript naming two ex-Confederate engineers building a spur line to Roanoke from the existing Richmond & Danville R.R. The letter comes with its original mailing envelope. Good condition with stains and folds.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
