Colonel Stevenson, at that time, had a part of his command at Fort Warren, on duty, although his headquarters were at Readville; and he was ordered, that, if he cannot protect and hold his men at Fort Warren, he shall remove them immediately to Camp Massasoit, at Readville, and hold them until otherwise ordered. The Governor had been written to by Mr. Sargent, the Mayor of Lowell, and many other city and town authorities, asking him whether the families of the men who had enlisted under General Butler were entitled to the State aid, which communications were referred to the Attorney-General, Hon. Dwight Foster, who returned, as an opinion, that all volunteers who are inhabitants of this State, and enlist here under the authority of the Governor, and the officers of the regiments are commissioned by him, their families are entitled to the aid; and, if General Butler's

We remained in Colonel Cowdin's quarters all night, made an inspection of the regiment next morning, and, taking a friendly good-by of officers and men, rode back to the ferry, and reached Washington that night. The next day (says the report), I went to see General Barry, chief of artillery, with Captain Davis, of Lowell, to have his company, which has been at Fortress Monroe ever since May last, changed to a light battery, as recommended by Major-General Wool. The change was made the next day, and the company was from that time known as the Seventh Light Battery Massachusetts Volunteers. On the following day, we went to Baltimore, where the Seventeenth Regiment and the First Light Battery were stationed. We received a hearty welcome from officers and men; visited the barracks and the hospital. There

I beg of you, Mr. Mayor, to exert all your influence to have Lowell furnish its quota. The demand is urgent and imperative. The President and Cab lead in this, the second campaign of the war, as she did in the first. Should Lowell furnish its quota, and other towns should fail, to Lowell will be the honor. Lowell will be the honor. To J. R. Comstock, Blackstone,— Make such arrangements for getting your quota as may to you seem best. We want the men; and as soon as your forty-two are rec: we are very much in need of them, and must have them. To John A.

The alarm spread also to the cities of Cambridge, Roxbury, Charlestown, Lowell, and New Bedford; and applications were made by the authorities of those places to the Governor State at very low prices. Mr. Forbes recommended their purchase. Mr. Forbes then speaks of Colonel Lowell, of our Second Cavalry, who had gone off on a rather dangerous scout on the skirts of Lee's fast to that which is good. Mr. Forbes concludes his letter by saying,— Nothing from Colonel Lowell's cavalry since yesterday morning, when they started for another reconnoissance.
