Summary Troops will be raised in Massachusetts and rendezvous at Springfield. No ships are traveling to Hartford before 1790, and states that he has had to put the clothing destined for Springfield on a vessel bound for New Haven instead. Asks that Wadsworth pay for the clothings' transportation from New Haven to Hartford, and then arrange for transportation from that place to Springfield, apologizing for the inconvenience.
