, in which Mrs. Lee and my daughters unite, I am most truly yours, R. E. Lee. The friendship between General Lee and the venerable Bishop Meade, of Virginia (whose efficient labors in the cause of evangelical piety were widely known and appreciated even outside of his own communion), was touchingly beautiful, and the following letter will be read with peculiar interest: Lexington, Virginia, March 7, 1866. Rt. Rev. John Johns, Bishop of Virginia, Theological Seminary, near Alexandria, Virginia: Rt. Rev. and Dear Sir: I am very glad to learn, from your note of the 27th ult., that you have consented to write a memoir of our good and beloved Bishop Meade. Of all the men I have ever known, I consider him the purest; and a history of his character and life will prove a benefit to mankind. No one can portray that character, or illustrate that life better than yourself; and I rejoice that the sacred duty has devolved upon you. In compliance with your request, I will stat

n that day to their usual places of worship, and to join in prayer to Almighty God, that He will graciously restore to our beloved country the blessings of peace and security. In faith whereof I have hereunto set my hand at the city of Richmond on the twenty-seventh day of February, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three. Jefferson Davis. Again do I call the people of the Confederacy—a people who believe that the Lord reigneth, and that His overruling Providence ordereth all things—to unite in prayer and humble submission under His chastening hand, and to beseech His favor on our suffering country. It is meet that when trials and reverses befall us, we should seek to take home to our hearts and consciences the lessons which they teach, and profit by the selfexamination for which they prepare us. Had not our successes on land and sea made us self-confident and forgetful of our reliance on Him? Had not the love of lucre eaten like a gangrene into

Devoutly thankful for signal mercies, let us bow before the Lord of hosts, and join our hearts with millions in our land in prayer that He will continue His merciful protection over our cause; that He will scatter our enemies and set at naught their evil designs, and that He will graciously restore to our country the blessings of peace and security. He announced the victory at Winchester in the following dispatch: To His Excellency, Jefferson Davis: June 15, 1863.—God has again crowned the valor of our troops with success. Early's Division stormed the enemy's intrenchments at Winchester, capturing their artillery, etc. R. E. Lee. His order requiring the observance of the fast-day appointed by President Davis in August, 1863, was as follows: General order no. 83. Headquarters, A. N. Va., August 13, 1863.

ave her with me. But year after year my hopes go out, and I must be resigned. The daughter whose death is so touchingly alluded to in the above letter was Miss Annie Carter Lee, who died at Warren, White Sulphur Springs, North Carolina, the 20th of October, 1862. At the close of the war the citizens of the county erected over her grave a handsome monument, which was unveiled with appropriate ceremonies. In response to an invitation to be present, General Lee wrote the following: Rockbridge Baths, July 25, 1866. Ladies: I have read with deep emotion your letter of the 17th instant, inviting myself and family to witness the erection of a monument over the remains of my daughter, at Warren, White Sulphur Springs, on the 8th of next month. I do not know how to express to you my thanks for your great kindness to her while living, and for your affectionate remembrance of her since dead. My gratitude for your attention and consideration will continue through life, and my pra

When the paper came to General Lee he endorsed on it: Approved, and respectfully returned to Captain——, with the advice that he should always respect the religious views and feelings of others. The following letters, addressed to a prominent rabbi of Richmond (to whom I am indebted for copies), will serve to illustrate the broad charity of this model Christian: Headquarters, Valley Mountain, August 29, 1861. rabbi M.

Himself in the greatness of His goodness, and in the majesty of His power, that we may secure the blessings of an honorable peace, and of free government; and that we, as a people, may ascribe all to the honor and glory of His name. Jefferson Davis. Not simply in his official station, but in his private life and influence as well, Mr. Davis was pronounced in his Christian character, and no one who has seen him, as it has been my privilege to do, in the freedom of his beautiful home at Beauvoir, and heard him talk of the struggles of the past, the trials of the present, and the hopes of the future, can doubt for a moment that his faith is built on the rock Christ Jesus, and that he has for years taken Jesus as the man of his counsel and the guide of his life. General R. E. Lee, the great commander of the Army of Northern Virginia from June, 1862, to the surrender at Appomattox Court House, was one of the noblest specimens of the Christian soldier that the world ever saw.

earing soon after that Jackson was growing worse, he expressed the deepest concern and said: Tell him that I am praying for him as I believe I have never prayed for myself. The 10th of May, 1863, was a beautiful Sabbath day, and Rev. B. T. Lacy, at the special request of the dying chieftain, left his bedside to hold his usual services at the Headquarters of the Second Corps. General Lee was present at the service, and at its conclusion he took Mr. Lacy aside to inquire particularly after Jackson's condition. Upon being told that he would not probably live through the day, he exclaimed: Oh! sir, he must not die. Surely God will not visit us with such a calamity. If I have ever prayed in my life I have pleaded with the Lord that Jackson might be spared to us. And then his heart swelled with emotion too deep for utterance, and he turned away to weep like a child. He thus announced the death of Jackson: General order, no. 61. Headquarters, A. N. Va., May 11, 1863. With

s precious mementos, or handed them down as priceless heirlooms. (I saw one of these books several years ago in the hands of a son whose father was killed on the retreat. It was not for sale. Indeed, money could not buy it.) General Lee's orders and reports always gratefully recognized the Lord of Hosts as the Giver of victory, and expressed an humble dependence upon and trust in Him. He thus began his dispatch to the President the evening of his great victory at Cold Harbor and Gaines's Mill. Headquarters, June 27, 1862. His Excellency, President Davis: Mr. President: Profoundly grateful to Almighty God for the signal victory granted to us, it is my pleasing task to announce to you the success achieved by this army to-day. His beautiful general order of congratulation to the troops on their series of splendid victories during the seven days battles opened with these memorable words: General order no. 75.
