If no shop manual, Google is loaded with the how to sequence.

'Should' be the same as hydraulic. R/R, L/R, R/F, L/F.
The master should respond the same way as a vacuum controlled master.
Current:
1976 Eldorado Convertible in Crystal Blue FireMist with white interior and top.
1969 Fleetwood Brougham in Chalice Gold FireMist with matching interior and top.

Past and much missed:
1977 Brougham de Elegance
1976 Eldorado Convertible
1972 Fleetwood Brougham
1971 Sedan de Ville
1970 de Ville Convertible
1969 Sedan de Ville
1959 Sedan deVille

Actually there  is a procedure  for bleeding the power brake unit, 2 bleeders involved, then onto the wheels as you mentioned.

It wasn't stated as to whether the Hydro-Vac unit was being bled. I 'assumed' the OP meant the wheels.
Current:

1969 Fleetwood Brougham in Chalice Gold FireMist with matching interior and top.

Past and much missed:

1969 Sedan de Ville

You don't bleed it like regular brakes. Need to bleed the booster 1st.
