Summary Grove, of North Carolina, returns a list of officer nominations, and professes his belief that the omission of a Mr. Martin's name from the list was not meant by McHenry or anyone else as a slight to Martin, to Grove, or to the president. He gives his recommendation of Martin, and supposes that his name might have been transposed to a list of officers for the provisional army.
