Washington College, Lexington, VA: 1 December 1869. A one page letter in ink on lined paper signed "RE Lee", addressed to E.H. Kimball in New York, 10 x 7 1/2 inches (25 x 18 cm), usual folds with one horizontal split into letter, a few creases, edge chips and toned areas.


Provenance: Dr. Herbert Ernest Klingelhofer (1915-2015), collector and former President of the Manuscript Society

Robert E. Lee, as President of Washington College, here writes regarding the potential acquisition of Greenough's bust of John C. Calhoun stating that "its possession by the College would be particularly desirable" but ultimately reports the College does not have funds for the piece given financial obligations to expand the curriculum. Lee expresses his desire that if a friend of the school were to procure and present it to the College it would be welcomed.


C Dr. Herbert E. Klingelhofer, former President of the Manuscript Society
