1827. Augt. 18 14

Constitutional Code.

Ch. X. Ministers Severally.
§. 2 Leading Principles
§. Army Minister
§. 10. Remuneration

55. 27

Prospect of superannuation
1. Privates — Superannuation
different from
compensation for casualty.
Old age not a casualty.

56. 28.
Reasons for superannuation,
1. As a compensation
for deprivation of relief
from sympathetic connections.
2. In this situation, the
man will not have
been able to provide
for himself.
3. Thence, many an apt
man would be deterred
from engaging.
4. Donation in this case
not productive of the
evil arising from pensions
to relatives
5. The not making such
provision for continuance
of promised affluence,
would be a violation
of inequality-minimizing

57. 29.
In this case, he will
have to account for
whatsoever aptitude
he may possess to the
last moment, after
no longer fit to face
the enemy.

58. 30.
Examples of service after
such disablement.
1. Training recruits.
2. Garrison service.
3. Local guard.
4. Preventive Service
(in watching.)

Ch. X. Ministers Severally.
§. 2 Leading Principles
§. Army Minister
§. 10. Remuneration<p>59. 31.
II. To their case the above
reasons scarcely applicable.
That apt persons
would not be found
without such expectation
there seems little reason
to apprehend.

60. 32.
Lord Erskine's pamphlet
no one could read without
being assured that
additional pay would be
acceptable, but whilst numbers
were paying for
military places, could there
be any want of men
ready to take them without
paying for them?

Extra Service
Prospect as to
remuneration for extra
1. Privates.
Whether the service
be military or civil, it's
value will be the same a given
quantity from whatever
hand it be received.
So far no distinction
lies between the demand
of the military man and
the non-military man.
But the non-military
can only render such
services by accident and
upon extraordinary
occasions: the military
man is continually in
the way to render
extraordinary as well as
ordinary military services.

As to the reward
applies the distinction
between military and
non-military men.
To military men
honorary reward of obvious
use: to non-military, a
especially to those of the most
very moderate lot of
pecuniary remuneration
would be worth much more.
