To Samuel Hodgdon, 8 January 1800
New York January 8th. 1800—
I have received a letter dated Decr. 1st 1799 from Captain Brock who is stationed at Stanton Virginia informing me that his men are suffering very much for the want of Cloathing. I therefore wish you to forward him immediately the requisite Cloathing should he not have received any subsequent to the date of his letter
with true consideration
