Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to the Board of Trade, 4 February 1780

To the Board of Trade

In Council Feby. 4. 1780.

The Board are of Opinion that exorbitant as the Price is these Articles must be bought to complete the cloathing which will authorize us to march Buford’s Battalion out of the State. A few day’s subsistence and pay (if detained for want of Shirts) will exceed the price demanded.

Th. Jefferson
