Dear Sir

Be pleased to order the Regimental Pay Master and Cloathier of Colo. Weissenfelds Regt to repair to New Burgh for a supply of Cloathing for the Regiment. If it does not reach them before they march from Schenectady to Fort Schuyler, it may follow them up. I have directed the Cloathier to give them as full a supply as our Store will admit, as they will be at a distance, and will not have opportunities of obtaining temporary aids.

His Excellency the Governor promises to give every assistance in procuring provision for Fort Schuyler. You will be pleased to make that a primary object, and endeavour to have the supply thrown in, in the course of this Month. I am Dear Sir Your most obt Servt

Go: Washington

P.S. The Levies are not to be included in the Cloathing Returns.
