Let me now read to you the testimony of the public services I have rendered, and you shall read for comparison some of the blank-verse you used to make such a hash of:

“ From gates of gloom and dwellings of the dead,1

Eur. Hec. 1

“ Tidings of woe with heavy heart I bear,


“ Oh cruel, cruel fate!

Such a fate may the gods first, and the jury afterwards, allot to you—for your citizenship is as worthless as your mummery. Read the depositions.“ Depositions

1 Eur. Hec. 1. The other quotations are unknown.
