Your Pay Mastr will inform you that besides the usual proportion of Cloathing, a number of Articles have been issued ostensibly, for the use of Olney’s & your Regt—but in reality, they are designed only for the object you have in contemplation; unless it is attempted, I would not have any of the Woolen Socks, Caps, or Mitts distributed among the Troops, I have ordered them all therefore to be addressed to you & to await your Orders—I am Sir With great regard Your Most Obedt Servt.
