In a letter from Colonel Brodhead, dated Fort McIntosh the 3d Ultimo, he has the following paragraph “There is a prodigious deficiency of Clothing and money in this department; some cloth has indeed been purchased in the State of Virginia, but the means of making it up are not provided; shoes and Linen cannot be had at any rate unless they are sent up by the clothier general.” He adds in...
I had the honor of your favor of the 25th ultimo thro’ Col. Pickering. The extract of a letter from Mr Measam D.C.G. and the several objects to which it refers, will naturally claim the earliest notice. In particular the linen and blankets are greatly wanted for the troops; and the necessity of encreasing our supply of both so evident as to stand in need of no arguments to induce the board to...
I have been honored with your favr of the 13th instant and those of Mr Scull of the 13th 15th and 19th—The number of Hunting shirts ordered to be made up by Otis and Henley will be fully sufficient, if they can be provided in time. I yesterday wrote to Boston and desired that they might be sent forward as fast as finished —Be pleased to direct Mr Mease to send on to Camp the ten thousand...
Middlebrook [ New Jersey ] April 15, 1779 . Regrets that the clothing department is not yet reorganized. Is pleased that cannon are to be provided. Disapproves of dividing the German Battalion and of reducing the cavalry. Df , in writing of H, George Washington Papers, Library of Congress.
I am honored with your favours of the 7th and 9th. It is infinitely to be lamented, that the Clothiers department still remains on so undecided and precarious a footing—The Board’s observation on the present expedient is evidently just. Our prospects for the future supply of cloathing from every thing that has come to my knowlege are truly deplorable. I am happy in the measures persuing to...
I yesterday recd the inclosed from Capt. Von Heer. As I do not know how he has been supplied heretofore with the Articles he now calls for, I cannot determine upon the propriety of the present application. I can only say, if it appears that they are necessary, he ought to be furnished with them—If The Quarter Master supplied him in the first instance with Horses he can I suppose remember...
We have been honoured with yours of the 8th inst. & in Consequence have enquired into the Affair of Lt Col. Nicholls promotion. The Certificate of Major Scull is enclosed on that Subject. We refer your Excellency to our Letter of Feby 23d —in which is candidly stated all we know of the Arrangement & the Concern we had in that Bussiness. The State of the Hunting Shirts you have no Doubt...
Middlebrook [ New Jersey ] April 10, 1779 . Asks that the Board wait until Baron von Steuben returns to Camp before deciding if duties of adjutant general and inspectorship should be united. Df , in writing of H, George Washington Papers, Library of Congress.
I have been duly honored with your favour of the 31st of, March, which, through hurry of business has been hitherto unanswered. From the relation in several respects between the duties of the office of Adjutant General and those of the Inspectorship; I pe[r]ceive advantages that would result from uniting them in a certain degree; but I am induced notwithstanding to recommend, that nothing...
The Board have been honoured with your Excellency’s Favours of the 26th of March & 2d & 4th April. All the Muskett Cartridges made up for a long time past including the whole now on Hand have been made up with Buck Shott agreeably to your Excellency’s Ideas. There are but five hundred Hunting Shirts in the Clothier Generals Store & no Materials for making more. We have been for a long time...
