The lieutenant-general commanding desires to impress upon the minds of DIVISION, brigade, regimental, and company commanders the importance of having sandals made for the barefooted men of their commands out of green brief-hides. Personal attention should be given to this matter. Details should be made to make a few as samples, so that no barefooted man can have and excuse for failing to provide himself with a pair.
