Content Description Provides additional information on the letter from Robert E. Lee addressed to his son Boo (George Washington Custis Lee) at West Point (GLC07081.01). Andrews reports that neither Colonel John M. Wilson, the Superintendent of West Point, who was on General George McClellan's staff, nor McClellan himself know about the disciplinary proceedings against William Lee for having alcohol in his quarters. Suggests that answers may be obtainable from a Mr. Nickolls or the records of the War Department. Andrews was possibly the George L. Andrews who taught French at West Point from 1871 to 1892. Green was a collector.
