Annotation

The sneaking guards were responsible to patrol at night in the streets of the city as quietly as possible. To this end, they were armed with old spears. They carried out their job so 'cautious', that they neither saw noticed out what happened in the streets during the night. For this service, primarily old, unusable guys were hired whose services were very doubtful.
