GE5. 6. W. T. LEE.
RiehnLoud T tines-Dispatch.
For th? true elements of greatness
that were his, and for his unselfish
devotion to her as a soldier aad citi
zen. Virginia mourn j the death of
Gen. George Washlnirton Custis Lee.
The oldest son of a great sire, having
many of hi.; finest trait.?, he was th<?
possessor of uncommon abilities and
of noble qualiti**? of character. To
him a.* a aoldier. his contemporaries,
both in the "old army" of the United
States and in the Confederate army,
pay high tribute A first honor grad
uate of West Point, he served in the
United States army with distinction
until the hour came when, like hia
father, he offered hia sword to Vir
ginia. Restrained by 3talt duties in
Richmond, he saw a ilttle service in
the field until toward the final years
of the struggle, but as a soldier in ac
tion he served with such distinguished
conduct as to entitl* him even a
loftier rank than t'.-f major generalcy
which he received.
Modesty in the highest degree was
a characteristic of both Gen. Robert
E. Lee and hi3 son who died yester
day. Neither sought promotion nor
"reputation even in the cannon's
mouth;" but always forgot self to
think of others. It was the father's
desire from the first that his son
should be a soldier in the field, a3 It
was the son's, but it was the will of
President Davis that the son should
serv? as one of hi3 taff officers, and
so It came about that in the greater
part of the war G. W. C. Lee was on
staff duty, frequently acting as the
method of communication between
the Confederate president and Lee,
the elder. In the spring of 1364.
President Davis, through a distin
guished general, sent a message to
Gen. Lee ?aying that he would order
the 3on to a certain important com
mand, and would make him major
general or lieutenant general, at the
same time expressing an exalted opin
ion of the ability of the son as a sol
dier, but the father replied: "I am
very much obliged to the president
for hi3 high opinion of Custis Lee.
and I hope that if Custis has the op
portunity he will prove himself not
entirely unworthy of the president's
high opinion. But he Is an untried
man. Against his will and my own,
the president has kept him on his
staff?and I will not take an untried
man and promote him over my vet
eran officers, especially when that
man is my own son." When Gen.
Er well, af'er Sailor's Creek, protested
that "the discipline preserved by Gen.
G. W. C. Lee in eam;> and on the
march, and the manner in which he
handled his troops in action, fully jus
tified the ret,ue.Ht I had made for his
promo'ion " President Davis replied
"that the only obstacle to be over
come was Lee's objection to receiving
promotion." In the same connection
Mr. I>avls refers to his "valuable
services" as a commander of the local
troops for the defense of Richmond.
His offer to the Union government
to substitute himself for his brother.
Gen. W. H. F. Lee, when the latter
was held as a hostage of war under
sentence of death, because the latter
had a wife and children while he had
none, was characteristic of the man,
as was his attempt to give Arlington
to his father and mother when It had
been wdlled to him.
For more than three decades he
enlisted himself In the cause of edu
cation in the South. For the first five
years after Appomattox he was pro
fessor of mechanics and engineering
at the Virginia Military Institute. In
1871 he succeeded his father a3 pres
ident of Washington and Lee, and un
til 1897 administered that institution
in an eminently satisfactory manner,
largely upon the lines laid down by
He served the nation that was and
the nation that (s, faithful through all
to his State. He did his duty simply
and quietly wherever he found it.
Virginia holds his memory in endur.
