Fortune

Good Fortune secures no position for its camp,

constructs no entrenchments behind which to retire.

It extends its line on either wing to prevent it being outflanked, but cannot make its front equal to Bad News, thins its line and weakens the centre so can hardly keep in touch.

On its right is a small hill which it decides to hold with reserves, and this disposition.

Bad News fears a ruse in scanty numbers of Good Fortune, and thinks the hill is occupied in order that reserves might attack flank and rear of Bad News while their front is engaged,

directs its attack upon Good Fortune’s reserves, certain that if it drives them from their position, its overwhelming numbers gives easy victory on level ground.
