JOHN SANFORD DART TO MAJ. GEN. GATES.

Philadelphia, October ye 21st, 1780.

Sir:

I have done myself the Honor of laying your letters of the 28th Septr., 5th & 6th Octor. inst., before the Board of War, and this Day received for answer that the Goods offered to you were so exorbitantly dear that they could by no means agree to their being purchased, as it would be out of their power to pay for them.

I have the Honor to be, with great
Respect, Sir, Your Obedt. Huml. Servt.,
JOHN SANFORD DART,
Depy. Cloathier General.
Honble. Major General Horatio Gates, Southern Army.
