* By this party it is shewn, that playing the king's knight the second move is entirely wrong, because it not only loses the attack, but gives it to the adversary. It will be seen likewise by three back games, that a good attack keeps the defender always embarrassed.
(a) Any thing else your adversary could have played this was your best move, it being advantageous to change your king's bishop's pawn for his king's pawn; because your royal pawns place themselves in the middle of the board, and stop the progress of your adversary's pieces ; besides, you gain the attack upon him, and that

by his having thus played his king's knight. You have still another advantage, by losing your king's bishop's pawn for his king's pawn, which is, when you do castle with your king's rook, the same rook finds itself immediately free and fit for action. This will be seen by the first back game.
(6) If he refuses taking your pawn, leave it in the same place exposed, except he should castle with his king's rook, in such case without any hesitation, or the interval of a single move, push it forwards in order to attack his king with all the pawns of your right wing. The effect of it will be learned by the second back game. See also Rule A. 3.
(c) If he takes your knight, take his bishop with your pawn, which being joined to his comrades increases the strength of your game.

(d) This is the best square your king's bishop can chuse, except his queen's bishop's 4th; particularly when you have the attack, and it be out of your adversary's power to hinder that bishop from playing on his king's bishop's pawn.
(e) If he had castled on his queen's side, it would have been your play to castle on your king's side, in order to attack him more commodiously with your pawns on the left. This attack at your left will be seen by the third back game, and see Rule C. 2.

shop's pawn, you must then have attacked his queen with your queen’s bishop, and pushed your king's rook's pawn the next move upon his bishop, to force him to take your knight ; then your best way, as before, would be then to take his bishop with your pawn, in order the better to support your king's pawn, and replace it in case it be taken.
(h) If he did not take your knight his bishop would remain imprisoned by your pawns, or he would lose at least three moves to get him free, which are sufficient to spoil his game.
(2) He plays this rook, either to double it or to remove your queen.
