I am favd with yours of the 15th Feby I imagined that the Agents would not have waited for orders to make up the linen proper for shirts, and that suitable for Overalls. The stock of these Articles cannot be too great, as they are in constant demand, and what are not used in one Campaign will keep over to the next without the least danger of damage, which is not the case with woolen Cloathing....
I have desired General Gates to draw upon you for cloathing for the three brigades with him, so far as they may be now deficient. This only extends to uniforms as I suppose there is a sufficiency of these remaining at Springfie[l]d and take it for granted all other kind of cloathing is already on its way I would not choose to have any thing whatsoever stopped on the road; which would only...
I am favoured with your letter of the 4th instant. The several particulars contained in it shall be considered and any measures that may appear necessary in consequence, taken. There is one part of it, however which demands my immediate attention. You wish to have regimental returns made of the cloathing wanted for each regiment in order to make it up in parcels answerable to those returns—for...
The situation of the army with respect to blankets stockings and shoes is so distressing that I am to desire you will forward on those articles from Springfield & Hartford with all possible dispatch; particularly the shoes, for want of which a great part of the men would be incapable of marching any distance, should it become ever so necessary. You will therefore send on the shoes in the first...
On the 1st Instant I did myself the Honor to write your Excellency, in which and my preceeding Letters I have regularly kept you advised what number of Articles of Cloathing I had set off from the several Agents, and were prepared to set off—And that I was fearfull of delays in the Quartermasters Department particularly at springfield, from whence my Asst writes me the 3d Instant that altho’...
In my Letter of yesterday I forgot to mention to your Excellency, that hearing by Accident there was a Commissary of Hides appointed at Albany, to Manufacter and exchange the public Leather into Shoes; I wrote him, to be informed how he was ordered to dispose of the shoes, and if he could furnish any for the Army under your immediate Command; to which he answered, that he has supplied the...
Your Excellency’s le⟨tter⟩ I had the honor of receiving last night. You m⟨ust⟩ ⟨ mutilated ⟩ endeavours to forward every thing without the le⟨ mutilated ⟩ shall come to hand from Boston &c. and e⟨ mutilated ⟩ articles you write for first; a few are just co⟨ mutilated ⟩ set off the moment the Quartermr can furni⟨sh⟩ ⟨ mutilated ⟩ whom I gave your letter; he says he is out ⟨ mutilated ⟩ will...
I have authorised General Huntington, to draw—either as much of the new imported Cloathing as will supply his present deficiency—or the full quantity for his whole brigade—on condition in the latter case of his returning into store such partial distribution as he may already have received—You will therefore upon his producing proper Returns furnish him agreeably thereto—and in case of his...
Your Excellency’s Letter of the 14th Ulto I had the Honor to receive, but not ’till the 31st. I now inclose a Return of the Cloathing on hand, by which your Excellency will see the particular number of overalls in store, including some that are on the road from Boston of which I have an Invoice. I really am deficient in Comprehension whether your Excellency means I shall keep a proportion of...
The Board of War having directed that the cloathing which is to come on from Boston for the use of the army should be deposited in the first instance at Springfie[l]d and Hartford, there to be sorted and repacked and afterwards brought on to the army—You will proceed to those places and superintend the execution of this business, with all practicable dispatch; provided it can be done...
On the 20th Ulto I did myself the Honour of writing your Excellency ⅌ Colonel Palfrey—and on the 27th I received your Letter of the 20th from Middle Brook, the particulars of which shall be minutely attended to and as expeditiously executed as the difficulties of the times in getting teams and forrage for them on the road will allow and the exertion of my abilities be able to accomplish....
I duly received your several Letters of the 6th—7th & 25th Instant. The Batallion Hats mentioned in the first, may remain at Springfield for the present—as I would not wish any more stores to be with the Army than are absolutely essential—and the number is so small that a distribution of them would rather serve to excite uneasiness. It will be well, if you can, to procure more. The Commissary...
I desire that immediately on receipt of this letter you will make a minute and accurate account of all the Clothing in your Store—and transmit it to Head Quarters without a moments delay. I am Sir Your humble servt. P.S. You will likewise add a State of such issues as may have been made in consequence of powers given to Genls Putnam & McDougall to draw from your Store. Df , in John Laurens’s...
I recd yours of the 10th by Major Nicholas and was very glad to hear that so large a quantity of Cloathing had got forward to Springfeild. There being but two kinds of Coats and all the Waistcoats and Breeches being alike, will make the issuing infinitely less troublesome than had there been a variety of Uniforms. All that you have now to do is to send them forward with the utmost expedition....
I have seen yours of the 16th to Mr Tilghman inclosing a return of the Cloathing sent forward to this place and delivered at Harford —The shoes and Blankets for Poors Brigade will be sent to them at Danbury and those for Pattersons & Learneds to Fishkills at which places they are to be quartered—I do not know what quantity of Cloathing or of what kind remains at Springfeild, but I think you...
On the 18th Instant I wrote you, requesting that you would send 5000 Shirts and five Thousand pair of Shoes as soon as possible to this Camp and I have to day directed Several Orders to be drawn upon you for sundry Articles for the Troops under the command of Genl J. Clinton. If you should not have Shirts and Shoes sufficient to comply with that Order and those of to day—the latter in favor of...
I have your favr of the 30th March. What I have principally in command at present is to desire you to forward on to Fishkill with the greatest expedition all the Shirts—Overalls—Hunting Shirts—Shoes and Stockings that are either at Boston, Springfeild or any other place to the Eastward. The above Articles are much wanted just now and as they are the only kind that will be in demand between...
I have your favr of the 3d instant inclosing a Return of Cloathing—It was my intention that you should keep a proportion of every Article on the East side of Hudsons River for the supply of the Troops in that Neighbourhood, and as Fis[h]kill will be more convenient to the whole than Springfeild, I think with you that it will be the most proper place of deposit for the small Articles of Shirts,...
