I would now like to ask the man who
censures our past conduct most severely, what party he would have wished our
city to join. The party that shares the guilt of all the disasters and dishonors
that have befallen Greece,—the party, as one may say, of the Thessalians and
their associates? Or that which permitted those disasters in the hope of selfish
gain, the party in which we may include the Arcadians, the Messenians, and the
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
