Summary As inspector, Hodgdon has examined the clothing and other articles received from Smith and Shepherd under their contract with the public. He finds many of the coats deficient in size and others inferior to the pattern and others coarse in the extreme. The shirts are equal to the pattern but many of the shoes are too small for soldiers.
