promotion as second lieutenants, the action of his Excellency in this matter was entirely acceptable to me so long as I remained Colonel of the Second Massachusetts Regiment; indeed, save that Mr. Stephen M. Weld, of West Roxbury, on the 26th of December, 1861, made application to me to nominate for a commission in my regiment his son, Stephen M. Weld, Jr., adding, that before applying to the Governor of Massachusetts for a commission he would like to know that such appointment would be agreeabse, and so it was ordered; but not so obeyed. My remonstrance, in a letter to the MajorGeneral commanding, sets forth my feelings; policy should not overthrow principle if it could be avoided. Acknowledging the order, I added, under date of Dec. 26, 1861: The soldier is in my guard-tent, charged with a violation of the forty-sixth article of war; no evidence having been submitted to a court-martial, guilt or innocence cannot be affirmed. I have examined the case, and am satisfied that
Mary Thacher Higginson, Thomas Wentworth Higginson: the story of his life, II: an old-fashioned home (search)
II: an old-fashioned home It is a curious fact, considering his vigorous manhood, that the infant Wentworth was at one time delicate, and according to family belief was kept alive by the juices of chicken bones. In after years, Mrs. Higginson wrote this letter, December 26, 1861:β€” Your birthday was remembered and honored by gratitude and praise, remembering as I did the poor half dead baby that I had for so long walked about in my arms and fed religiously according to direction every two hours, bearing hope in my heart when there seemed no hope, and even the most experienced doctors gave him up; how could I be but grateful and exultant when I think of my stalwart son, the Day Star of my Life! Too many babies is the concise label with which Wentworth, the man, indorsed a letter written by his Aunt Nancy in 1824, in which she says:β€” I believe I have not written you since the birth of our young Thomas Wentworth. I meant to have announced to you the arrival of the
dgewater Dragoons and Springfield Horseguards. The first enlistments were made in the early part of September, 1861, and on September 11 Robert Williams of Virginia, captain, assistant adjutant-general, U. S. Army, was appointed by Governor Andrew as colonel of the regiment, being recommended by Gen. Winfield Scott. The 1st Battalion, comprising Cos. A, B, C and D, under Maj. Greely S. Curtis, left Massachusetts December 25 and went to Annapolis, Md. The 2d and 3d Battalions, leaving on December 26 and 28, remained ten days in New York and then went on to Hilton Head, S. C., and were joined in a short time by the 1st Battalion. In the movement against Charleston, S. C., Colonel Williams commanded the brigade of which the regiment formed a part. The 1st and 2d Battalions joined the army of the Potomac in Virginia, Aug. 19, 1862, and the 3d Battalion remained in South Carolina in command of Maj. A. H. Stevens, Jr., three companies being stationed at Beaufort and the other at Hilton

of all my faith in Providence. But if, for our own sins, we have yet a long and hard struggle before us, I am willing to accept it, so that we work our way through the darkness into light at last; and I think I could lay down my life cheerfully, if need be, could I but die in the full faith that the final result of the contest would be to plant the system our fathers founded more firmly, and purified from the canker that has corrupted it and endangered its existence. Headquarters, December 26, 1861. War with England seems to me not unlikely, though I have been very slow to believe in it. If it comes, we must bid good by to the hope of a speedy peace, and every man who can will have to turn soldier. Were it not for my wife and children, and for you andβ€”β€”, I should require only the assurance that the North would continue in harmonious action to put forth its entire strength, to enable me to accept cheerfully the prospect of a war which, if we can keep under honest guidance,
