Lexington Va: 6 June 1868

My dear Sir

I enclose powers of attorney for myself & daughter Mildred to sell the Virginia stocks standing in our names. My daughter Agnes is absent & has I am told her certificate of stock with her. I have sent her a power of attorney to execute & send to you with the certificates, but I fear they will reach you too late. You must do upon their arrival what you consider best. I enclose with the certificates of registered stock, the bonds issued for back interest. I suppose those in the name of my daughter Anne C. Lee, if not sold will have to be transferred to mine. Those in Mildred’s name if you do not think advisable to sell, retain.

After selling the bonds invest the amount to the credit of my daughter Mildred as you & Mr Jas: K. Caskie1 may think best. I also request that you let me know the amount to my credit after selling the stock.

Very truly your obliged friend

R E Lee

Mr. R. H. Maury




1. James Kerr Caskie (1818-1868), a Richmond tobacco merchant. He died on 1868 September 20.
