In the publication of the Extracts of the Resolves of Congress of the 3d and 21st of October there was an omission of part of that of the 3d declaring that the retiring officers should be entitled to land at the close of the war agreeable to the resolution of the 16th of September 1776, though the Resolution of the 21st is silent on this Article, the General has no doubt that it remains in force.
