1827. Augt. Oct. 7.
Constitutional Code.

Ch. X. Defensive Force.
§. 2. Leading Principles.

10. or 2.
When hardships, natural
and factitious, are laid
aside, the situation of
the private with the
total pay of the lowest
paid labourer, would
become an object of
general desire.

11. or 3.
Moreover, the less the
pay accepted, the stronger
the relish for the service.

II. Officers. To this situation
the office auction
applicable though not
so that of Private.

12. or 4.
Bounty. 1. Privates.
Whether any thing, or
any thing more than
a very small sum
necessary, where health
and strength without
hardship are maximized.

3 ed. 13. or 5.
The time for a bounty
is the law of urgency,
and as urgency has no
determinate limits,
so has bounty none.

Ch. X. Defensive Force.
§. 2. Leading Principles.

14. or 6.
2. As to Officers provision
too simple to
admit of any such
additional inducement.

VI 15. or 1.
Art. or 1. Length of an
engagement. 2. Privates.
Reasons for shortness.
1. The shorter the term, the
more powerful the
inducement to engage:
especially in so far as
prolongation depends upon
the functionary's will.

VI 16. or 2.
Art. or 2. Questions,
professional and local, not
constitutional, for consideration.
Term what: whether
1. For life.
2. For number of years certain.
3. What the number.
4. Number — shall it vary
according to age at the
time of enlistment.

17. or 3.
Art. or 3. Reasons
against such maximization
of the length.
1. Hardship extreme: to
every individual to whom
the situation proves
disagreeable, the disagreeableness
becomes maximized
by the hopelessness
of relief.
2. On such terms, difficulty
of finding volunteers.
3. Proportionable expense
in pay and bounty for
surmounting reluctance.
4. In case of limited
duration, addition made
to the radical force by
those discharged from the

§. 2. Leading Principles.

VI 18. or 4.
Art. or 4. Reasons
for it.
1. Encrease of appropriate
aptitude by length
of experience, sure to
decrease by old age.
2. Difficulty and uncertainty
of timely filling
up of vacancies
produced by discharge.

VI 19. or 5.
I. Officer.
Art. or 5. Universally
so eligible have these
situations been made
that, exceptions excepted,
scarcely has the idea
been entertained of
giving to the engagement
any other term that that
of his own pleasure.
1. His service immediately
needful, and no
adequate substitute on
the spot.
2. Dislocation of the
individual for misconduct.
3. Disbanding of his
corps: in which case
a portion of his pay
is commonly reserved
to him.
In England, to the Officer, the half.
To the Private, nothing.
