334 Journal and Correspondence

C. C.

Cloathing can be had from here. We have been obliged to
compound in Money with our own Troops for some of the
very Cloathing we furnished the Continental Regiments. We
have ordered Mr Hollingsworth if he has any large Guns
finished, to send them forward. Do have two or three of them
tryed and, if they are worth sending to General Washington,
send them to him, if not worth while to send them return them
to us. We are Gent &ca
The Delegates attending
in Congress.


[Council to H. Hollingsworth.]

In Council 11th Augt 1777.
By a Letter received from our Delegates attending in Con-
gress, our Troops in the Continental Service are in great
Want of Cloathing, especially Shoes and Breeches; we there-
fore send up what Shoes & Overalls we have and some
Jacketts and Shirts which we request you to send forward
immediately to be delivered into the Hands of our Delegates
at Philada We shall be greatly obliged by your particular
Care to push them forward as quickly as possible. Any of
the large Guns you may have finished we would have you
send forward with the Cloathing. If you could lighten your
Musquet Barrels a little towards the muzzle, they would be
very good. Winters speaks well of those he last stocked.
Colo Henry Hollingsworth We are &ca
Head of Elk.
