Date December 23, 1796
Author Name Elias Langham (primary) Location: Shepherds Town
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary Among a number of supply matters, Langham notes that he forwarded to Major Craig 615 good blankets and fifteen damaged ones that he did not separate from the good ones. However, they were noted in the inventory and he did not think it proper to charge them to either Craig or Hodgdon in the returns. He also sent Craig 2035 pairs of shoes but the weather being so severe, he fears the wagons will be slow in returning to Shepherds Town.
