Summary Encloses instructions for the immediate selection and delivery of uniform clothing to the garrisons, ordering Wallington to carry them out, as Col. Meigs, the officer to whom the instructions are addressed, remains very ill. Seems to grant Meigs' full authority in this matter to Wallington. Informs Wallington that much clothing should have arrived at Greeneville, he is to forward that supply to the head of the line. Advises against any delay, as the season is growing late.
