Shooting in camp or on the line of march is prohibited The
Captains of Companies will make a daily report of the situation
and strength of their companies.
A detail of camp, picket and horse guard will be daily made,
and an officer of the day and an officer of the guard appointed. The
guard will be turned off at 9 O'clock precisely, except when the
army is on the march.
[Every (?)] citizen soldier of the army of the people now in
the field . .1 apprized of the cause he is defending-it is
the cause of the Constitution and of fredom: the cause of each
man individually and of Texas collectively-our prosperity and
happiness will in a great measure depend on the issue of the present
campaign-every one feels its importance, and it is unnecessary to
appeal to the patriotism of the army. But the Commander in chief
deems it his duty to remind each citizen soldier that patriotism
and firmness will avail but little, without discipline and strict
obedience to orders. The first duty of a soldier is obedience. It
is expected that the army of the people altho hastily collected will
present an example of obedience that will do honor to the cause
we are engaged in, and credit to the patriots who are defending it.
Gonsales October 11th 1835.
