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...
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.

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...
Fredericksburg [ New York ] October 28, 1778 . Orders that all clothing be forwarded to Headquarters. Df , in writings of Tench Tilghman, George Washington, and H, George Washington Papers, Library of Congress.
The cold season advances so rapidly—and the necessities of the troops are so distressingly great, that it is of infinite importance to the service to have the cloathing of every kind brought to camp and distributed as speedily as possible. It begins to be high time to enter into Winter quarters; and we shall be obliged to adopt the same expedient and submit to the same inconveniences with...
