Author Name Joseph Williams (primary) Location: Springfield
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary From the manner in which the stores arrive from Oxford, it is impossible to ascertain the articles belonging to each individual regiment. Nearly all the tents, and part of the blankets, cartouche boxes, and canteens come openly in bundles. Many of the casks and probably all the arms chests did not have the number of the regiment they belong to.
