Dear Mr. McParland,
You are probably aware of this but I wish to mention a two-volume biography on G.W. Custis Lee entitled "The Perfect Gentleman", which was published a few years ago. The author is Bernice Yates, and if you can ignore the countless misspellings and grammatical errors, it offers some interesting information on this rather enigmatic but fascinating man. Someone described him as "a near clone of his father", which may be accurate, although the Commander In Chief liked the company of ladies. I'm certain Custis did as well, but of all of the Lees, he seemed the most unsocial. I find it difficult to fathom, as he was exceptionally handsome, genteel, intelligent, well-bred, and intriguing. He was also very quiet, introspective, introverted, and not particularly comfortable with ladies.
I would like to join your Custis Lee club, as I have *always* been very drawn to him....
