Crisply penned ALS signed “R. E. Lee,” one page, 4.5 x 7.25, June 2, 1866. Letter to Miss Mollie Pease, in full: "In compliance with your request of the 28th ulto: I send a button from a coat I wore during the war. It has upon it the arms of Virginia. Thanking you for your sympathy with the South, so becomingly expressed as one of its daughters." In fine condition, with a few light stains and slight splitting along one of the two mailing folds. A remarkable letter sending what would be a priceless artifact from the Civil War.
