re the Government could reconsider the matter. One of his first steps was to transmit the following letter, outlining his plans:— Boston, Jan. 30, 1863. Francis G. Shaw, Esq., Staten Island, N. Y. Dear sir,—As you may have seen by the newspapers, I am about to raise a colored regiment in Massachusetts. This I cannot but ably private.
