Robert Shaw writes to his father, Francis, of the need of his help in the formation of the first black regiment [the 54th Massachusetts]. He mentions that the regimental committee has hired a black man, W. Wells, who will help to enlist men and will call upon Francis. The enlistees will receive $100.00 from the U.S. at the end of their service and be paid $13.00 a month, the same as white soldiers. He asks his father to pay the men's passage to Readeville. Mr. [Richard Price] Hallowell wants Francis to pay everything and he is is to send the accounts to Hallowell for reimbursement. He would like the men to be examined by a surgeon before they go, so that they will not need to be sent back. When a squad is shipped, Francis is to telegraph Hallowell the time of its departure and its size. He points out that the lack of state aid to the men will be a drawback and that Massachusetts is the only state to give it
