PLEDGE
I pledge to the "Society of the Third (Regular) Divi-

ment of the objects for which it is formed, that same full
measure of loyalty and devotion, which my comrades who
have fallen gave to the Division itself and to the cause for

Through my loyalty and devotion to their memory,
their loyalty and devotion shall no more be forgotten by
