Now, if you please, take and read the decree of Demosthenes,1 in which you will see that he has prescribed that in the first of the two meetings of the assembly all who wish shall take part in the discussion, but that on the next day the presiding officers shall put the question to vote, without giving opportunity for debate—the day on which he asserts that I supported Philocrates in the discussion.“Decree

1 This is not the draft of a decree just spoken of, but that decree in which Demosthenes had provided for the two meetings of the assembly.
