Summary The reference in Col. Stevens account to overalls may be adjusted without McHenry's intervention. During an inclement season, soldiers were destitute of necessary articles of dress and Col. Stevens made an offer to provide it for them. He was authorized to do so but only at a designated price. However, Col. Stevens cannot be held responsible for waste by the companies in the cutting of cloth to produce the articles.
