No. 37 Fort Washington Jany 19th 1792
Dear Sir
Captain Cushing arrived here on Y92
the sixth instant, by him I received your
Letter of the 21st ultimo. The Clothing has
been examined, and found in the following
particulars not to answer to the Invoice
First wanting in Case No 5 - One pair of
Woolen Overalls - Case No 3 contains three
pairs of officers more than is in the invoice
Case No 7 - wants eleven shirts - and Box No 8
wants One shirt - I have duly informed
Captain Cushing of these deficiencies, and
also, that he will only have a receipt for
the Contents of the Boxes and priviliages agreea-
bly to the examination - from circumstances
I have no doubts, but that some, if not
all the deficiencies, were the affect of opening
packages on the river for deliver of Clothing.
I am more [intensity] employed since the
arrival of Mr Swan but hope to [illegible] the
last of all my business in about [illegible]
that I may then return to Philadelphia. I did intend at first thought to go by the way of Kentucky and the wilderness - But I am now rather disposed to think I shall come up the River - will thank you to have QrM [Quarter Master] accounts ready, that, I may adjust, and take them on with me - Everything remains quiet here at present - the outer forts are in tolerable fare, and well furnished with provisions - present my best respects to Mrs. Craig - to the Generals family, and to all friends -
With Sentiments of esteem I am Sir, Your most Obedient Servant
Samuel Hodgdon QMr
