Lee to Davis regarding the loss at Gettysburg    Mr. President    Your note of the 27 enclosing a slip from the Charleston Mercury relative to the battle of Gettysburg is received.   I much regret its general censure upon the operations of the army, as it is calculated to do us no good either at home or abroad.   But I am prepared for similar criticism & as far as I am concerned the remarks fall harmless.
