My dear Dr.

Let me thank you for all & all that was done to him by Sen & also for your sympathy for me.

I was sorry I cry I am--?-- --?-- a minute when at Lexington but I was but crushed to delay any one

I am today moving to Lexington --?-- there blessed dear my husband & the children also.

The mother of Gen R. E. Lee who lies in an unmarked grave at this place Ravensworth Lee --?-- was home & I feel she should be also I got your permission with also the Trustees some time ago. But the War prevented it being done

Mr. Penick has it in charge and --?-- --?-- has spoken to you about it-

With kindest regards and the fullest appreciation of all done for us --?--

Sincely M T Lee

Mrs W H F Lee
