Excerpt

u doing? Why are you going to destroy yourself?" Then she, so that you might easily recognize their habitual attachment, weeping, threw herself back upon him-- how affectionately!

SOS. What do you say?

SIM. I returned thence in anger, and hurt at heart: and {yet there was} not sufficient ground for reproving him. He might say; "What have I done? How have I deserved {this}, or offended, father? She who wished to throw herself into the flames, I prevented; I saved her." The defense is a reasonable one.

SOS. You judge aright; for if you censure him who has assisted to preserve life, what are you to do to him who causes loss or misfortune {to it}?

SIM. Chremes comes to me next day, exclaiming: "Disgraceful conduct!"-- that he had ascertained that Pamphilus was keeping this foreign woman as a wife. I steadfastly denied that to be the fact. He insisted that it was the fact. In short, I then left him refusing to bestow his daughter.

SOS. Did not you then {reprove} your son?
