Description
The bearer, Gen. [William] Whipple, is appointed to Congress for one year; they desire Bartlett to remain at least until [George] Frost's arrival, so that the state may not lose its vote; the continental officers have often complained that their men were not clothed; lately the field officers have petitioned, showing that desertions have become frequent and that the men cannot be kept in camp without clothing; there is plenty in store at Portsmouth, but it cannot be issued without an order of Congress; they desire him to forward this matter.
