If someone could check this too.

Clearchus was the first one to want to force his soldiers to advance, but they, thinking that they were marching against the king of the Persians, threw him stones.

Κλεαρχος πρωτος έβουληθη τους αὑτου στρατιωτας πορευεσθαι αναγκαζειν, αλλ' έκεινοι, νομιζοντες προς τον των Περσων βασιλεα πορευεσθαι, λιθους έβαλον αύτῳ.

The present circumstances were making the general unhappy.

Τα παρουντα πραγματα τον στρατηγον άτυχη έποιεν.

Since he received a lot of money from Cyrus, which he spent for his soldiers, and Cyrus did good to him, Clearchus tried to help him; it seemed good to him to ask the Greeks if they would agree to walk with Cyrus.

Πολλα γαρ χρηματα άπο Κυρου έλαβεν, ἁ έδαπανησεν είς τους αὑτου στρατιωτας, και εύ έποιησεν αύτον Κυρος, αύτον Κλεαρχος ώφελησαι έπειρησεν· έδοξεν αύτῳ έρωτησαι τους Ἑλληναϛ εί θελησουσι μετα Κυρου πορευεσθαι.
