Head Quarters New Windsor April 17th 1781
By the Letter from the Quarter Master General, transmitted herewith, Your Excellency will be pleased to observe the necessity of furnishing the Camp Equipage specified in the estimate for the Troops of Your State, as also the reason why this application was not made at an earlier period.
Every other effort for a supply, having failed of success, this is the last resource now remaining—And I have only to add, my earnest wishes, that this may not disappoint our expectations. With great esteem & respect I have the honor to be Your Excellency’s Most Obedient Servant
Sent also to John Hancock, William Greene and Meshech Weare.
