The Commander in Chief - Take care of your own sacred person, and never expose it to any dangers. When any service of danger is to be performed, you should send your second in command. If he succeeds in the business be sure to take all the merit of it to yourself. To the Corporal - It is your officr to post the sentinels, and to see that they are properly relieved; and a disagreeable office it is in a dark, cold, and stormy night. You may therefore in bad weather save yourself that trouble, and send the relief by themselves. This will be a means of teaching them how to perform their duty, when corporals, and surely they must be very unfit for sentinels, if they cannot be trusted alone.
