Head Qrs 22 Mch 1783
The Officers of the day Report a defficency of Camp Kettles—Straw also is much wanting.
The Commander in Chief wishes to know—whether the want of kettles arises from their want of Care or whether a proper allowance has not been issued what the allowance is and how long a Kettle is to last & if any on hand. Also if any Measures are taken to procure Straw. I am Dr Sir Your very Obed. Servt
