Letter, 1915 November 4 Richmond, Virginia to Mrs. Norman V. Randolph, Richmond, Virginia.

McCabe wrote this letter at Mrs. Randolph's request to synopsize a reply to a letter from Mrs. Virginia Morgan Robinson attacking the committee, charged with erecting a statue to Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg, for representing Lee in Brigadier General's coat and insignia rather than a full general's uniform. McCabe explains and defends the committee's decision.
