VERY FINE. A RARE FIELD COVER FROM CONFEDERATE GENERAL ROBERT E. LEE TO GENERAL J.E.B. STUART.
Robert E. Lee's letters sent from the field were enclosed in envelopes signed "R. E. Lee Genl". The letters and other important papers were carried by military courier, usually to Richmond to another officer under Lee's command. James Ewell Brown Stuart, the recipient, was a trusted Confederate Cavalry General and excelled in major conflicts such as the Peninsular Campaign and the Battle of Chancellorsville. He was killed at the Battle of Yellow Tavern in 1864
