Summary O'Hara requests $50,000 for the Quartermaster's Department. Post notes in his name would be the safest way to transmit same by carriage. There is a need for money in small denominations. Gold regulated would be preferred, along with silver, but if it can't be sent, send a complete set of scales by which O'Hara can have it regulated. Letter paper used by the War Department is also needed.
