195. Mix Kindness with Authority; and rule more by Discretion than Rigor.  1
  196. If thy Servant be faulty, strive rather to convince him of his Error, than discover thy Passion: And when he is sensible, forgive him.  2
  197. Remember he is thy Fellow-Creature, and that God’s Goodness, not thy Merit, has made the Difference betwixt Thee and Him.  3
  198. Let not thy Children Domineer over thy Servants: Nor suffer them to slight thy Children.  4
  199. Suppress Tales in the general: But where a Matter requires notice, encourage the Complaint, and right the Aggrieved.  5
  200. If a Child, he ought to Entreat, and not to Command; and if a Servant, to comply where he does not obey.  6
  201. Tho’ there should be but one Master and Mistress in a Family, yet Servants should know that Children have the Reversion.  7
