‘Resolve upon an absolute obedience to your commanders, in all things consistent with your obedience to God, and the sovereign power.’ Disobedience is no where more intolerable than in an army; where it is often unfit for a soldier to know the reason of his commands; and where self-conceitedness and wilfulness are inconsistent with their common safety, and the lives of many may pay for the disobedience of a few. If you cannot obey, undertake not to be soldiers.
