The Master's Order
Sitting round in a circle (which may comprise any number) one player must begin by saying to his neighbour: “The Master has sent me to you.” “For what?” replies the one addressed. “To work with me and do as I”. at the same time the speaker must begin to beat his knee with his right hand. The second player gets to work in the same way, at the same time turning to his neighbour and repeating the statement made to him, until the whole circle is working.
The second tie round the same thing is said, only the left hand beat the left knee.
Third time round all right feet wag. Fourth time round all left legs wag. Fifth time around all heads must wag so that in the end the whole circle is working. Of course, any lapsing must be paid for in forfeits.
