I received your favor of the 6 Inst. & am of Opinion as you have not a sufficient number of Armourers at Albany to repair the whole of the Arms in your possession that whatever more you have than can be repaired in a Conven[ien]t time, had better be sent immediately to the Armourers here—This will save much time which wou’d be lost were the Armourers to goe from hence & return again.

If the late Commy of Hides retains the leather which he has upon hand, by the direction of the Cloathier General, it may be for some particular purpose, and therefore I would not wish to order it to be delivered to you, lest it should interfere with some arrangements in the Cloathing department—I should think you might...
