    the order of persons

    Hi,
    Have I arranged the pronouns correctly?

    You, he and I always speak the truth. (2nd, 3rd and 1st person for something good)

    I, you and he always tell a lie. (1st, 2nd and 3rd person for something bad)

    Re: the order of persons

    Custom and politeness dictates that you always list yourself last.

    "You, he, and I" is the natural order. Of course this is where the word "we" comes in handy.
