This letter informs Lane that Davis' recommendation won't carry the same weight as it might have once had.
The collection contains Lane family letters, a copy of James H. Lane's commission as commandant of cadets at the Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College, and a list of rules for the cadets at VAMC.
