A want of Materials alone has prevented a complete Nomination for the whole of the Troops directed to be raised. Care will be taken that this necessary Postponement, Shall in no manner affect the relative Rank of the officers to be yet appointed. Nor is it intended that the order of nomination in this List shall have any Influence in the Ultimate Settlement of the Rank of these officers. They will only be directed to Obey in the order in which they here stand, untill an Ulteriour Arrangement shall be made

John Adams.
