[6] Some of you, I suppose, remember that when you were discussing Persian affairs, I was the first to come forward with advice,1 and I believe I was the only speaker, or perhaps one out of two, to say that I should think it prudent in you not to make your hostility to the King the pretext for your preparations, but while equipping yourselves against your existing enemies, to defend yourselves against him too, if he attempted to do you wrong. Nor did I fail to convince you that I was right, but you, too, approved of my suggestion.

1 In the speech On the Navy-boards., Dem. 14
