who, from the scarcity of work, are unable to clothe themselves and children. There are many of them willing to work if they could get it to do. Private charity has done a good deal to help them through the winter so far, but still there are numbers of children who have had no Shoes, nor clothing enough to keep them warm out of doors. It is this class I wish to divide the clothing with, and this cannot be done without selling some of the mens' clothing and buying cloth for the women and children
If you will permit me to sell some of the clothing for the above purpose I will make a return of how much I [[strikethrough]]sold[[/strikethrough]]sell, who to, at what price, &c.
Please let me hear from you as soon as convenient, and much oblige
