ing Washington' City, and make it
a memorial to. and a musetfm, ot
relics and mementoes of R. E.

. And, Whereas, The national
goverfimerit firsLacquIred titi to
this property from a tax-sale, and
afterward paid the heirs, ot R. E.
Lee a most liberal sum for their
supposed equity in the property,
And, Whereas, The government

cemetery rhere are buried thous
ands of the men who gave their
lives for the T'nion, and whore are
also-buried many others who dis
