Mr. Davis' letter to General Lee, June 28, 1863.

Giving reasons why he could not send General Beauregard to Culpeper C. H., or any troops to Culpeper C. H., to make a diversion in his favor, was entrusted to a courier who was captured by Captain Dahlgren, of General Meade's staff. So that General Meade had full knowledge that he had nothing to fear in the direction of Washington.

General Lee first learned that his suggestions would not be entertained by reading Mr. President Davis' letter to him in the New York Herald and New York Tribune.

General. Lee resigned in August.
