To Samuel Hodgdon, 14 May 1800
New-York May 14th. 1800.
Enclosed is a Copy of a letter from Capt. Williamson, the Deputy Paymaster General in this district.
The Situation of the troops to which he alludes, is extremely uncomfortable, and I cannot but regret that no notice should have been taken of an application made so long since as the first of April—You will give information without delay whether there is a supply of Cloathing on hand, and, if not, what measures have been taken for the
⟨ ⟩ purpose of procuring one.
With consideration I am Sir Yr. ob Servt.
