Abstract
Asks that the money for payment on the clothing not be used for that purpose, because "it is much better that the Soldiers of America should fight naked than that their country should lose its credit, & involve innocent men in its ruin." The money will be better used to pay the bills. Carmichael asks that this letter, "written in a distraction of mind ," be returned to him
