Philadelphia 10th Septr 1800.
Sir,
Be pleased to deliver Francis Brown
or ordr, Sixty piecs of ravens Duck, Ten pices
of brown linn, and thirty five pounds of thread
suitable for cutting out one thousand pairs of
Overalls, for the Army, and affordning materials for
making them up
Your most obedint Servant
Samuel Hodgdon

Mr. John Harris

As the articles when cut out & accompanied
with the linen & thread as trimmings must
form the credit, to balance the delivery. I have
thought it best to draw in favour of the operator
instead of the Purveyor as usual, in either
case it passes to the General Account
immediatley.
