Detachment Orders from Clark: While the commanding office and Captain Clark are absent from camp, the party will be commanded by Serg. Ordway. The sawyers are still working to cut enough planks. The blacksmiths are still working also. The four men are still working to make sugar and will do so until told otherwise. The practicing party will continue to discharge only one round each per day, which will be done under the direction of Serg. Ordway. All practices will be at the same target, and at the same distance of fifty years off hand. During each practice, the person who makes the best shot receives a gill of extra whiskey. Floyd will take charge of our quarters and store and be exempt from guard duty until our return.
