Translation:

Hence it is that which none in the whole army are more intimate relations to be maintained than with spies. None should be more liberally rewarded. In no other business should greater secrecy be preserved.

Commentary

Keep your spies close. Know all that is to be known about them. Treat them well and make them feel important. Pay them well also, for their exploits and find every way to keep them motivated and loyal.
