Colonel Browne's mission was to confer with Governor Goodwin, of New Hampshire, and Governor Washburn, of r, by similarity of legislation, institutions, and, in later years, of political sentiment. Colonel Browne was intrusted with the whole of the private correspondence with Mr. Adams before mentioned, burn to adopt the same policy for Maine. Leaving Boston on the evening of Saturday, Jan. 5, Colonel Browne, after an interview with Governor Goodwin, at Portsmouth on Sunday, reached Augusta on Jan. phed at once, after my interview with Mr. Sumner, General Scott, and Colonel Keyes, to Mr. Albert G.

June 15.—The Governor addressed the following letter to the President of the United States, which was given to Mr. William Everett, and taken by him to Washington, and delivered to Mr. Lincoln:—
losed in these words: Citizen-soldiers of Massachusetts! Duty, honor, the clearest sentiments of patriotic love and devotion, call for your hearts and unconquerable arms. Aug. 30.—The Governor sent General Reed, Quartermaster-General, and Colonel Browne, his private secretary, to Washington, with instructions to arrange for the settlement of Massachusetts claims against the Government for money and stores furnished by the State. Among the results of this mission was the payment in cash, byy to Governor Morgan. They and their commands were placed under his orders, who would organize them in the manner he might judge the most advantageous. In a letter dated Washington, Sept. 6, written jointly by General John H. Reed and Colonel A. G. Browne, Jr., to Governor Andrew, they state that they had held interviews with the President and the Secretary of War the day before; and both had promised that no more special permits should be given, and that General Order No. 71 should be made t
nt authorize it to be done by the State, as the State can do it with more expedition and economy than it can be done otherwise. These letters were taken to Washington by Colonel Charles Amory, master of ordnance of Massachusetts. Jan. 18.—Colonel Browne, by direction of the Governor, writes to Henry N.

whether furloughs granted between July 31 and Aug. 11 are revoked by General Order 92 of July 31. On the same day, Colonel Browne, by direction of the Governor, forwards to John M. Forbes copies of certain papers in relation to supplies furnished s thanks for your generous kindness in this transaction. Among the letters and papers transmitted to Mr. Forbes by Colonel Browne was the following by Adjutant Peirson of the Twentieth Regiment, dated Camp Lee, Poolesville, Md., March 8, 1862, and addressed to Colonel Browne:— By special request of His Excellency Governor Andrew, I have the honor to report, that while a prisoner of war in Richmond, Va., I received a letter of credit from John M. Forbes, Esq., for $1,000. A portion of thyond his power to cure, it continued until the end of the war. It would appear by the following letter, written by Colonel Browne, to Cyrus W. Francis, Yale College, New Haven, Ct., that the first attempt to enlist colored volunteers was by Govern
dollars to be expended, under the direction of the Governor, for coast defences, on the first of April he dispatched Colonel Browne, his military secretary, to Washington, to confer with the Secretary of War on the subject, and to obtain his opinion brigadier-general of colored troops; and that the subject was brought to the attention of Secretary Stanton by Lieutenant-Colonel Browne, when in Washington, at this time; but the former did not receive the proposition favorably, as we find by a le the Governor to Secretary Stanton, which commences as follows:— I am surprised and sorry to perceive, by Lieutenant-Colonel Browne's report, that you seem to have regarded me as trying to force upon the Government a new brigadier-general, anded to his brother, Captain William Shelby, Co. B, Second Regiment, Georgia Infantry, C. S.A., on which is endorsed by Colonel Browne, The within is a copy of an original letter taken in the engagement at Chancellorsville, by a sergeant in an Ohio reg
of a high degree of intelligence and care, exercised by a competent and efficient commander. Their appearance was in all respects creditable and satisfactory. The officer above referred to was major of the Fourth Regiment, in the three months service, and was the first loyal officer to touch the soil of Virginia, after hostilities were commenced, having landed at Fortress Monroe on the morning of April 20, 1861. On the 19th of April, the Governor wrote by his military secretary, Colonel Browne, to William E. Parmenter, of West Cambridge,— I send you copies of correspondence concerning an application of Colonel Joselyn, of our Fifteenth Regiment, precisely similar to that in the case in which you are interested. You will see that it is about hopeless to induce the Secretary of War to let any rebel go from the North to the South, to arrange an exchange for himself. But General Hitchcock seems to think there would be no objection to the reverse of the arrangement, and is
s will reach Colonel Hallowell, even if he has left Philadelphia. Colonel Hallowell had been staying at his father's home for some weeks, recovering from wounds received in battle. On the 18th of July, the Governor wrote to Colonel A. G Browne, Jr., military secretary, who was then in Washington. asking him to call at the office of the Provost-Marshal-General to have immediate measures taken to have the men enlisted in rebel States mustered into the service. From my last advices frly waited the consent of the Secretary of War to have him mustered in, which was not obtained: this man was Sergeant Swailes. Major-General John G. Foster, commanding the Department of North Carolina, had approved of the recommendation; Lieutenant-Colonel Browne, who was in Washington, was requested by the Governor on the 12th of December, to call upon Secretary Stanton, and obtain permission to have the man mustered in. In this letter, the Governor said,— It is perfectly certain, that th
d by the Secretary of War, and organized into companies. The Governor's military secretary, Colonel Browne, who was in Washington, was requested by the Governor to call upon Secretary Stanton, and ob received the proposition with a degree of rudeness altogether unexpected and uncalled for. Colonel Browne's letter gives a detailed account of the interview, which, though interesting, we refrain from quoting. On the 24th of January, the Governor wrote to Colonel Browne, acknowledging the receipt of his letter, and commented at considerable length upon the extraordinary character of the languo John M. Forbes, who was then in Washington, inclosing him a copy of some memoranda made by Colonel Browne, of a conversation had with General Totten, in Boston, in September, 1863, which bore directncy Adams, aide-de-camp. Lieutenant-Colonel William L. Candler, aide-de-camp. Lieutenant-Colonel Albert G. Browne, Jr., late private secretary. Major Henry Ware, private secretary. Major-General
