I enclose you a return of the Brigade of State Troops, under my command, for the month of March. We wish to inform you that the Brigade is greatly distressed for clothing, and desire to have Mr. Craig ordered forward with supplies.
The arrangement of three Battalions has made it necessary that each officer be supplied with another commission. Be pleased to send them (for the three Battalions) and I shall, as soon as may be, return you a fair Copy of the arrangements. Also to the Board of War.
There is now twenty-four or five vacancies in the three Battalions, and I am doubtful many more will soon be.
I shall be glad to receive your Order and the Commissions as soon as you please.
