Summary The inclemency of the season requires that the men remaining at West Point be furnished with the proper clothing, including woolen overalls, shoes, shirts, socks, etc. These items are exhausted in the regimental store and some of the men are unfit for duty for want of them. Captain Frye has been at West Point while checking on his family and did not know that his accounts had to be passed through the Corps Quartermaster. He rectified that situation upon his return to Governors Island.
