JAMES WILKINSON, ESQ., CLOTHIER GENERAL, TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Philadelphia, 9th August, 1779.

Sir:

The Congress having appointed me Clothier Gen'l to the Army of the United States, I take the liberty to enclose your Excellency the Ordinance for the regulation of that department, and beg leave to urge the immediate appointment of your State Clothier as indispensably necessary for the precise prosecution of the business and for the equitable supply of the Troops.

I shall be much obliged by an account of the Clothing the State may have purchased and have on hand for its respective Troops.

I have the honor to be, with high respect,
Your Excellency's Mo. ob. Serv't,
JAMES WILKINSON.
