George H. Sharpe, Esq.
U. S. Marshal,
New York City.
I have received your letter of the 21st instant, and in reply inform you that the warden of the Jail should be directed to furnish the prisoners referred to by you with proper clothing and charge the same in his bill against the government for keeping its prisoners.
If the jailer declines to do so, you will furnish such prisoners with the needed clothing, and charge the same in your accounts against the government, and it will be allowed.
A. J. Falls,
furnish prisoners clothing
