"Brown, you this day presumed to make use of language which was seditious and mutinous. I passed it over, pitying your situation, and attributing it to your distress rather than your inclination to sow discontent among the party. ... But your duty as a soldier called on your obedience to your officer, and a prohibition of such language, which for this time I will pardon; but assure you, should it ever be repeated, by instant death will I avenge your ingratitude and punish your disobedience. ..."
