 We do have many of Robert Gould Shaw's letters in manuscript, together with other Shaw Family Papers. Because the original letters are fragile and are of great interest to many readers, we have digitized them here: http://nrs.harvard.edu/urn-3:FHCL.Hough:hou00649

The letters also have been published in an edition with a biographical introduction by Russell Duncan. Here is the record of the paperback edition from Books in Print; you can ask your local library or bookstore to order it for you if they don't already have it:
