3014 N Street Washington, D.C. March 12, 1925 Mrs. Stuart Mosby Coleman The Wyoming, Washington, D.C. My dear Mrs. Coleman: I am in receipt of your letter of the 9th instant, from which I note that you are a daughter of Colonel John S. Mosby, who I remember very pleasantly. I note also that you plan to write an article in commemoration of the sixtieth anniversary of the Surrender at Appomattox (at which I was personally present) and that you wish the names of my children and grandchildren to be used in this connection. I have two living daughters, - Mrs. Mary Isham and Mrs. Jessie Johnson. Mrs. Isham has but one son, Lincoln Isham; while Mrs. Johnson has two children, Robert Lincoln Beckwith and


-2- Mary Lincoln Beckwith. I am sorry to say, however, that I cannot comply with your request in regard to a photograph of my children and grandchildren, as I have none here which I can send to you. Believe me, Very truly yours, Robert Lincoln
