Report by same to the Queen concerning the clothiers of the Army. Several Colonels of Regiments have neglected to comply with the instructions given to the Comptrollers of Army Accounts concerning the contracts for clothing, which might give just cause to the soldiers to complain of being ill-served in their clothing "and doth at this time cause very many clamorous applications to be made by their clothiers for their payments out of the offreckonings according to their assignments" which cannot be paid because the said Comptrollers cannot sign the necessary certificates to the Paymaster of the Forces.
