By following Chauvelin's strict orders -- to stand guard outside, waiting for Percy before doing anything with the fugitives -- they unwittingly let the fugitives free. Chauvelin promises his henchmen that they will die for their mistake, but they let Chauvelin know that they didn't go after the escaping fugitives in deference to his orders.
