However, let us return to the subject of Caesar's written papers. How were they
verified by you? For the acts of Caesar were for peace's sake confirmed by the
senate; that is to say, the acts which Caesar had really done, not those which
Antonius said that Caesar had done. Where do all these come from? By whom are
they produced and vouched for? If they are false, why are they ratified? If they
are true, why are they sold? But the vote which was come to enjoined you, after
the first of June, to make an examination of Caesar's acts with the assistance
of a council. What council did you consult? whom did you ever invite to help
you? what was the first of June that you waited for? Was it that day on which
you, having traveled all through the colonies where the veterans were settled,
returned escorted by a band of armed men?
Oh what a splendid progress of yours was that in the months of April and May,
when you attempted even to lead a colony to Capua
! How you made your escape from thence, or rather how you
barely made your escape, we all know.
