for three thousand Dollars; The State of ours, and the
Advances already made, beyond what has been supplied by

the Continental Treasury, will not afford a Compliance in the
Extent of your Request, and we hope the Sum sent may
answer, 'til you can draw at Philada we are not able to furnish
Cloathing, Capt Handy carries you an Order for the Blankets
& 200 Pair of Shoes. We have consulted Genl Smallwood
about the Innoculation of your Men; the Shop here is not
able to furnish the Medicines mentioned in Doctr Scott's
Memorandum, not having so much of some of the Articles as
the Doctor put down. From the very great Disinclination
the Inhabitants of the Town and its Neighbourhood have to
the Introduction of the Small Pox, Genl Smallwood, with us,
thinks it best your Troops should be immediately sent for-
ward to Wilmington or Philadelphia; if to Philadelphia as
much of the Way as may be, by Water; where many have
already been innoculated with Success. Doctr Shippen, in a
late Letter, speaking of our Troops, says, "If they have not
had the Small Pox, they should hasten on to receive that Dis-
temper, 1000 can be well accomodated at German Town and
as many in the Environs of this City." We have ordered you
eight Pieces of Rolls for Beds for your Battalion.
