The clothing ordered from you has all arrived with the exception of sword belts. I wish you would send me, to be paid on delivery one sword belt for Brigadier General, and one for Aid to Brigadier.
I would be pleased if you will send these immediately upon receipt of this. Send by Express to this place to collect on delivery.
If you do not keep these articles please turn the order over to Mr. Hosseman and advise me if the articles will be sent.

Copy, NN. An undated fragment, apparently a portion of the original order sent in Aug., 1861, gave USG's measurements.
Please send in addition to the above one set of buttons and shoulder straps. The pants I would like full in the legs and quite long." ADS, Joseph L. Eisendrath, Jr., Highland Park, Ill.
