This quartermaster with the 28th Pennsylvania Infantry (1861-62) was later a captain and Adjutant Commissar of Subsistence until the war's end, at which time he became personal secretary to Governor John W. Geary (1867-73), a former Union general -- and Lee's brother-in-law. ALS, 2pp (lettersheet), 5" X 7 3/4", Harrisburg, PA, 1872 October 15. Addressed to George A. Lewis. Very good. Mild bit of soiling; minor mounting trace on blank 4th leaf. On ornate "Executive Chamber" letterhead, Lee replies to a cryptic request. In part: "Your favor to the Governor is received. I am directed to say, that he cannot give you the desired information, By applying to Genl. Meigs Q.M. General U.S. Army, you can probably ascertain when the book can be found." Boldly signed, along with "Private Secretary." A handsome example, neatly and legible penned. Bookseller Inventory # 31476
