Buffalo Aug. 6th/62

Gov. Sprague

Dr. Sir
I See
from the papers that
you are organizing
a Colored Regiment in
your state - If this is
the fact I should be
glad to know whether you
would accept a colored Col-
ored Company from
Buffalo to join your
regiment
I suppose all
the commissioned officers
will be White and the
non commissioned
officers colored. Respectful-
ly yours
John Norris
