Summary Rochefontaine transmits a return of clothing needed immediately at West Point. The weather has become so inclement that the men are actually suffering for want of clothing. He asked that the clothing be sent with Lieutenant Dransy but if he cannot return immediately, send someone else. Captain Frye should be notified because he can be relied upon to inform the contractors, Manning & Smith, of the urgency of the matter.
