War department, Nov: 10th 1792.
I have received your letter of the 2d instant. I am surprized to hear that a single pair of the woolen overalls, for the troops should have been rejected. Every article of clothing was reported to me, as having passed a critical examination by the inspectors, who were specially appointed for that purpose.
I am Sir,
with esteem,
Your humble Servt
H Knox
Major Craig
