[7] And that young recruit, mark you, stepped ahead—of the lieutenant and marched in front of him! And when I saw it, I said: ‘Fellow, what are you doing?’ ‘I am going ahead, as you ordered,’ said he. ‘Well,’ said I, ‘I ordered not only you, but all to go ahead.’ When he heard this, he turned about to his comrades and said: ‘Don't you hear him scolding? He orders us all to go ahead.’ Then the men all ran past their lieutenant and came toward me.
