 File — Box: WSC001, Folder: W0129.20

Scope and Contents

In a letter, dated December 17, 1906, from Henry E. Shepherd, author of The Life of Robert Edward Lee, to Colonel Thomas S. Kenan of Raleigh, North Carolina, Shepherd assures Kenan that five additional copies of The Life of Lee will be sent from the publisher soon. Shepherd also describes a letter from a critic who "expresses an implied contempt for my book as well as for myself and any literary work that might appear under my auspices." Shepherd continues that he doesn't know the writer and has never "given him the slightest cause of offense." Shepherd also tells Kenan that he is to speak at the Lee Centennial in Charlotte, North Carolina, on January 19, 1907, and that he might be returning to his home in Baltimore, Maryland, via Raleigh, and would make every effort to see Kenan then.
