To Samuel Hodgdon
Carlisle [Pennsylvania] October 7. 1794
It is with distress I find that the troops are every where a head of their supplies. Not a shoe, blanket or ounce of ammunition destined for this place is yet arrived—except what Mr. Wright1 conductor for the Pensylvania division brought on with him. I begin to fear infidelity in some of your conductors of Waggons. For Heaven sake send forward a man that can be depended upon on each route to hasten them on. My expectations have been egregiously disappointed.
With consideration & esteem I am sir Your obed ser
