Correspondence from Jefferson Davis to General Robert E. Lee - March 24, 1865
March 24, 1865.
General ROBERT E. LEE,
The governor of Virginia calls my attention to the fact that he has not received a requisition for slaves, as provided for in the act of the General Assembly of the 4th of March, 1865. A copy of the act was forwarded to you from my office.
