he Governor was limited by law to four aides-de-camp, each with the rank and title of lieutenant-colonel. Governor Andrew appointed, as his military aids, Horace Binney Sargent, of West Roxbury (senior aid); Harrison Ritchie, of Boston; John W. Wetherell, of Worcester; and Henry Lee, Jr., of Brookline. Colonel Sargent had served Colonel Sargent had served on the staff of Governor Banks. He remained on the staff of Governor Andrew until he was commissioned lieutenant-colonel of the First Regiment of Massachusetts Cavalry, in August, 1861, when Colonel Ritchie became senior aid, and John Quincy Adams, of Quincy, was appointed to fill the vacancy. Massachusetts was represented in tlate to attend to any business. I therefore determined to start on Tuesday morning, which gave me an opportunity of discussing the objects of my mission with Colonel Sargent, who took the same train as far as Springfield, Mass., and enabled me to reach this city this morning by daybreak. Immediately after breakfast, I called on
adier-general. General Reed entered upon his duties immediately, and relieved the Adjutant-General of all quartermaster's duties and responsibilities. Many of the duties had previously been performed, during the week, by the aides-de-camp of the Governor, and by private gentlemen, who had volunteered their services. From the hour the telegram was received by the Governor, the pressure of business upon the executive and military departments of the State became more and more urgent. Colonels Sargent, Ritchie, Lee, and Wetherell, of the Governor's personal staff, were on duty, answering inquiries, writing letters, and attending to the multiplicity of details which the duties of the executive rendered necessary. The Executive Council was also in session; and, on the 20th of April, it was ordered that the Treasurer be authorized to borrow two hundred thousand dollars, to be held as an emergency fund for military purposes; also, that an agent be sent to Europe with authority to purcha

Horace Binney Sargent, of West Roxbury, senior aide-de-camp to the Governor, was commissioned lieutenant-colonel; Greely S. Curtis, of Boston, and John H. Edson, of Boston, wererooklyn must prepare to return our three companies. We have incurred expense, raised hopes; and Brooklyn has cruelly misled, disappointed, and mortified us. Colonel Sargent, by direction of the Governor, writes to Henry Ward Beecher, asking if Brooklyn people will send the companies back. If not, Massachusetts will pay the expe in six minutes. Every thing—horses, wagons, and all—is ready for your call. I have the honor to be sir, your most respectful and obedient servant, Horace Binney Sargent, Aide-de-camp.

he order, as General Butler had no authority to enlist volunteers in Massachusetts, except for the Twenty-sixth and Twenty-eighth Regiments. 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;

Same day, he writes to the Governor, Dr. Upham has just arrived, with thirty Massachusetts men,—Major Stevenson, Lieutenant Nichols, Lieutenant Sargent, Sergeant Perkins, and others. We shall get them off to-morrow morning by the eight-o'clock train. A hundred and fifty men, who left Baltimore this morning, have not yet arrived. On the fourth day of April, Surgeon-General Dale made a r adjutant-general of the army, and was brevetted brigadier-general, for brave and meritorious services. John Quincy Adams, who was appointed on the personal staff of the Governor to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Colonel Horace Binney Sargent, who was appointed lieutenant-colonel of the First Massachusetts Cavalry, was directed by the Governor, in September, to visit the Massachusetts regiments in the Department of North Carolina, and to report their condition on his retu

I trust my fulness and freedom may receive your pardon. The changes and additions to the Governor's staff in the year 1862 were as follows:— John Quincy Adams, of Quincy, was appointed aide-de-camp, with the rank of lieutenant-colonel, Jan. 4, 1862, to supply the vacancy occasioned by the appointment of Horace Binney Sargent as lieutenant-colonel of the First Regiment Massachusetts Cavalry. Harrison Ritchie became senior aide, with rank of colonel. Charles F. Blake, of Boston, was appointed assistant quartermaster-general, with the rank of major, Aug. 7, 1862.
