Excerpt from Calendar of the Correspondence Relating to the American Revolution: Of Brigadier-General George Weedon, Hon. Richard Henry Lee, Hon. Arthur Lee, and Major-General Nathanael Greence

The Weedon correspondence, here calendared, is contained in one volume of original letters to brigadier-general George Wee don and copies of letters from him during the Revolutionary War. The copies are mostly in his own handwriting or attested by his initials. The volume was given in 1835 by Colonel Hugh Mercer, of Fredericksburg, Va. To Dr. James Mease, and by him presented to the American Philosophical Society. Colonel Mercer was a son of General Hugh Mercer, who fell at Princeton, and a nephew of General Weedon's wife.

The Lee papers consist of original letters to Richard Henry Lee copies of letters from him; letters to Arthur Lee; miscellaneous letters, and private and official papers, on topics relating to the Lees, or public affairs with which they were connected during the period from 1766 to 1789. They are contained in two volumes which were presented to the American Philosophical Society, June 17, 1825, by Richard Henry Lee, Esq., grandson of the signer, having been partly made use of by him in his memoirs of his grandfather. Such previous publication, with the volume and page, is indicated in the calendar.
