Abstract

I. It is assumed, that the formation, in which the subjects of the "Nightwatch'' are going to march is as follows: a. the sword-bearer; b. the captain and his lieutenant; c. the two little girls with food and drink; d. the standard-bearer with escort; e. the pikemen; f. the musketeers. II. The spectators cannot be identified. The little boy with the powder-horn is running away because he has finished with providing the musketeers with powder. III. The manipulations of the musketeers illustrate, from left to right, the execution of the five principal orders given to the musketeers before, during and after shooting. The handling of his gun by the "red musketeer" is not quite clear. IV. A few further examples are given of pictures showing drinks being offered to civic guards, and of children accompanying them.
