Letter from Louisiana Native Guard

March 27, 1863

A letter to Garrison, includes two dollars, and a request for back copies of the Liberator.  The subscriber assures Garrison that copies have been read by Officers and privates of the First Louisiana Colored Regiment “with eager interest”.  “Send me some anti-slavery tracts, if you can, and I will make good use of them….In a few days I hope to write you something touching the colored troops, that you may think worth printing.”  Signed by J. T. Paine, Surgeon, lst Regt. Louisiana Native Guard
